McDermott has won an Aramco contract.

American contracting and engineering heavyweight McDermott has been awarded engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) contracts from Saudi Arabian oil company Saudi Aramco for its Hasbah and Karan fields.

As part of the ‘large’ contract — which is valued between $50-250m (SAR187.5-937.5m) — McDermott will provide EPCI services for a production deck module (PDM) in the Hasbah gas field and carry out hook-up and modification works in the Karan field, located offshore in the Arabian Gulf.

The project will be engineered in Saudi Arabia and fabrication will be carried out at McDermott’s Jebel Ali facility in UAE.

Fabrication is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2020 and the contract award will be reflected in McDermott's Q3 2019 backlog.

Its scope of the work includes the installation of 6km of corrosion resistant alloy-cladded flowlines, 6.5km of subsea umbilical cables, offshore tie-ins to existing facilities, and electrical modifications to existing PDMs and a wellhead PDM for four wells.

Speaking about the contract win, senior vice president for the Middle East and North Africa at McDermott, Linh Austin, said: “This award is confirmation that the McDermott execution model we call the One McDermott Way gives clients confidence that we consistently deliver quality.”
