In 2019, McDermott stated it noted a “record-level order intake” during the second quarter. The American contracting heavyweight attributed the majority of its Q2 2019 revenue worth $399m to its Saudi Aramco megaprojects. These included Safaniya Phases 5 and 6 and engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) contracts valued at $4.5bn (SAR16.8bn) for Packages 1 and 4 of its Marjan Increment Development.
McDermott International won a contract in October 2019, valued between $50m (SAR187.5m) and $250m (SAR937.7m), for supply and works on Amrial Complex in Saudi Arabia from Saudi Aramco and Total Raffinage Chimie (Total).
In February 2020, the EPCI giant along with Saudi Aramco broke ground on KSA’s SAFIRA fabrication yard. McDermott has been working on the Industries’ Liwa Plastic Industries Complex (LPIC). The project recently entered its performance testing stage, having noted 98% completion on construction and recorded 121.5 million lost time injury-free (LTI) man-hours on-site as of March 2020.
