CW In Focus | The Middle East's EPC contract pipeline [2019]

Weekly CW bulletin episode explores the security of EPC contractors in a region rapidly moving towards renewables

Engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractors are noting significant growth in the Middle East, despite the renewable energy drive under way in key markets such as Saudi Arabia. 

Contracts worth more than $1bn have already been awarded to EPC contractors in the Middle East this year, such as US contractor McDermott's recently announced contracts to work on Saudi Aramco’s Marjan oil field.

In this video, Construction Week's deputy editor, Oscar Rousseau, explores the state of the EPC contracting market in the Middle East as of February 2019.
