McDermott bags Aramco EPCI

January 4, 2017

Saudi Aramco has awarded McDermott International a contract for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of four jackets and three gas observation platforms, offshore Saudi Arabia.

The total weight of all structures combined is 11,595-ton. Work on the contract is expected to be executed through Q4 2017.

McDermott plans to use its engineering teams in Dubai, Chennai, India and Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia with construction taking place at McDermott’s fabrication facilities in Dubai and Dammam, Saudi Arabia. Vessels from McDermott’s global fleet are scheduled to perform the installation work. The contract award will be reflected in McDermott’s Q4 2016 backlog.

“As the third fast-track jacket contract from Saudi Aramco in the last 18 months, this award is a testament to McDermott’s successful performance on previous fast-track projects for Saudi Aramco,” said Linh Austin, McDermott VP, Middle East & Caspian. “McDermott’s fully-integrated EPCI solution provides Saudi Aramco schedule certainty, one of their key drivers, while helping them meet their aggressive schedule.”

In 2015, McDermott was awarded a project by Saudi Aramco for the EPCI of 12 jackets; a project successfully completed in 2016.  McDermott is currently executing EPCI work for Saudi Aramco on nine jackets offshore Saudi Arabia, which are expected to be delivered in Q3 2017.
