A consortium led by L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering (LTHE) has received two contracts from Saudi Aramco for engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) in offshore fields.

A wholly owned subsidiary of Larsen & Toubro, LTHE procured these two contracts in consortium with EMAS CHIYODA Subsea.

Under the first contract, four wellhead decks will be supplied and installed in the Safaniya field.

The second contract award requires upgrade of 17 offshore platforms located in the Arabian Sea, offshore Saudi Arabia.

Last year, Saudi Aramco awarded a long-term agreement to the consortium of LTHE-EMAS CHIYODA Subsea. The consortium expects to continue as an important service provider to Saudi Aramco and associate itself with various developmental activities in the country.

"It is an opportunity for our consortium to build in-kingdom skills and capabilities to deliver brownfield work in a project."

LTHE managing director and CEO Subramanian Sarma said: “We are delighted with the new awards. It is an opportunity for Aramco to benefit from our flagship facility at Hazira as the centre of fabrication of the four decks in one of the contracts.

“It is also an opportunity for our consortium to build in-kingdom skills and capabilities to deliver the brownfield work in the other project.” 

He further said: “Hasbah Offshore Gas Increment Project, which is a part of the Fadhili Gas Plant is progressing well and in accordance with the plan. The consortium with our strong teams, delivering excellence in execution and bespoke EPCI services with the state-of-the-art facilities, are committed to a long-term participation in Aramco’s projects.”

LTHE is an Indian multi-national organisation that provides EPCI solutions for the offshore oil and gas industry. It operates in more than 30 countries, generating revenue of approximately $30bn.
