The new office expands McDermott’s engineering capacity in the region and will enhance its offering in Saudi Arabia.

“The opening of our new office further solidifies our leadership in the area and our commitment to Saudi Arabia,” said Linh Austin, VP, Middle East and Caspian. “This new office expands our current capability in Kingdom and for the region and increases support to our customers, particularly in brownfield work.”

“This is just one of several initiatives demonstrating McDermott's continued commitment to the Saudi market and the In-Kingdom Total Value Add (IKTVA) Program,” added Austin.

The office opening follows McDermott’s recent Dammam yard inauguration and recruitment drive in Al-Khobar, where the Company interviewed and assessed more than 600 Saudi craftsmen to support IKTVA localization objectives.

McDermott has an extensive history of executing complex EPCI projects offshore Saudi Arabia and is committed to supporting the continued growth of oil and gas production in the Kingdom. Through decades of regional experience and intimate knowledge gained of field conditions, McDermott’s Saudi operation has been established as a brownfield center of excellence, the company said.
