Emas AMC and L&T nab $1bn-plus Saudi Aramco deal
Saudi Aramco has reportedly awarded the $1bn-plus deal to the Singaporean and Indian contractors for the expansion of its offshore Hasbah sour gas field
Saudi Aramco has reportedly awarded a contract, worth over $1bn, to India's Larsen & Toubro (L&T) and Singapore-based Emas AMC for the expansion of the offshore Hasbah sour gas field.
Work on the expansion scheme includes building platforms and pipelines, with the field's supply feeding the Fadhili gas plant, a $6bn complex that will include a gas processing unit and sulphur recovery, according to Arabian Business.
It is the second major contract win for the duo in recent months: Emas AMC, a unit of Ezra Holdings, also teamed up last year with the Indian firm to secure a long-term contract with Aramco to work on offshore facilities.
The expansion of Hasbah will supply 2 billion standard cubic feet per day (scfd) of gas to the Fadhili plant, for which Aramco awarded a construction contract last year.
The remaining 500 million scfd of supply for the plant will come from the onshore Khursaniyah field.
