Dutch marine giant Royal Boskalis Westminster (Boskalis) has won a $40m three-year subsea services contract  in the Middle East.

Under the deal, which has an option to exceed, Boskalis will deliver a broad spectrum of subsea inspection, repair, and maintenance services to its unnamed client. This includes integrity assessments for offshore platforms and tripods; wellhead jacket inspections; integrity assessments; inspections of pipelines; and light "ad-hoc construction work”.

The contractor, a global services provider of dredging, maritime infrastructure, and marine services, said it will deploy the diving support vessel Boka Constructor with remote-operated underwater vehicles (ROV) for this contract.

The vessel is fully crewed air diving/ ROV teams and options for saturation diving.

Boskalis representatives said they were unable to provide additional information about the contract at the request of the client.

The announcement comes less than two months after oil and gas giant Saudi Aramco chose Boskalis to work on its Long-Term Agreement for Offshore Facilities (LTA) programme.

The contractor entered the agreement in consortium with UAE-based company Lamprell, which will focus on the engineering, procurement, and construction of offshore structures, such as topsides and jackets.

As part of the LTA programme at Aramco, selected contractors like Boskalis have the right to bid for tenders put out by the Saudi oil giant without further technical prequalification, considerably shortening the lead time through to award.

It is unclear whether Boskalis' latest contract announcement is related to its Aramco LTA status.
