Saudi Aramco awards contract to National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC) for four offshore platforms and associated submarine pipelines, cables and tie-ins for three oilfields
Saudi Aramco has awarded a contract to National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC) for four offshore platforms and associated submarine pipelines, cables and tie-ins for three oilfields.
The work will be conducted at Al Safaniya, Zuluf and Berri oilfields and will be part of a larger agreement signed last year between Saudi Aramco and NPCC to help establish oil and gas producing facilities in the Arabian Gulf, according to WAM.
Aqeel A Madhi, CEO of NPCC, said: "These contracts include engineering, procurement, fabrication, load-out, transportation, installation, hook-up and pre-commissioning work of four offshore platforms, SSS wellhead decks, with the associated four subsea pipelines, three submarine cables and downstream tie-ins.”
Saudi Aramco has signed a six-year agreement with NPCC and other contractors. Under this agreement, contractors will be responsible for delivering a number of offshore oil and gas producing platforms, tie-in platforms, pipelines, power cables, and all the related facilities, as required under the current master plan for Saudi Aramco's offshore fields.
NPCC will continue its ongoing strategy of increasing its market share of international oil and gas engineering, procurement and construction market by exploring new growth opportunities.
