Indian contracting heavyweight Larsen & Toubro’s (L&T) engineering and construction arm, L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering (LTHE), has won an engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) contract alongside Singapore-headquartered Emas AMC – part of Oslo Stock Exchange-listed Subsea 7 – from the world’s largest oil producer Saudi Aramco for its Marjan Increment Development Project.

In a statement, L&T said its scope of works included four tie-in platforms, one tie platform module, and nine production deck modules (wellhead decks), in addition to the installation of 217km-long subsea pipelines across 25 segments, and 145km of subsea cables across 16 segments.

Additionally, LTHE will work on the replacement of existing control gears at eight Saudi Aramco offshore platforms.

L&T said it classified the contract as a 'megaproject', which the firm classifies as one worth $1bn.

Saudi Aramco’s Marjan contract follows LTHE’s work on the Hasbah Gas Increment Project and other developments in the kingdom, such as Safaniya, Zuluf, and Berri.

The contract win comes a week after Saudi Aramco awarded 34 contracts worth $18bn (SAR67.5bn) for its Marjan and Berri oil field increment programmes.

American contractor Mcdermott revealed that it had been awarded two EPCI contracts, worth $4.5bn (SAR16.8bn), for Packages 1 and 4 of Marjan.

Among other companies that have won contracts for the Aramco oil field programmes are Italy’s Saipem and South Korea’s Hyundai Engineering and Constructing.
