Saudi Aramco extends SNC-Lavalin’s GES+ contract
Saudi Aramco has awarded a five-year extension to SNC-Lavalin Fayez Engineering’s existing GES+ contract, with three one-year options to extend
Saudi Aramco has awarded a five-year extension to SNC-Lavalin Fayez Engineering’s (SLFE) existing General Engineering Services Plus (GES+) contract.
Under the terms of the contract, SLFE, a partnership between SNC-Lavalin and Dr Zuhair Fayez, will be invited to bid on front-end engineering, detailed engineering, and project management services to support the implementation of Saudi Aramco’s capital and sustaining capital programmes.
Projects will include onshore oil and gas production and processing facilities, building and infrastructure projects, and refining and petrochemical facilities.
The latest agreement also includes three one-year options to extend, according to SLFE.
Martin Adler, SNC-Lavalin’s president of oil and gas, said: “Saudi Aramco has been a valued client of ours for over 20 years. We are honoured to have this opportunity to continue our relationship as an approved GES+ contractor, and contribute to the kingdom’s programme to increase local expertise and employment.
“We are very proud of the confidence Saudi Aramco has shown in our technical expertise, systems, and project management capability, and we are looking forward to continuing our collaboration under this new long-term agreement to help Saudi Aramco achieve the objectives set out under the GES+ contract,” he added.
During the past five years, SLFE has completed more than 200 projects under the GES+ initiative.
The majority of these contracts were competitively bid against other Saudi Aracmo-qualified GES+ contractors, and were orchestrated from the engineering consultancy’s head office in Al-Khobar, Saudi Arabia.
