McDermott wins two Saudi Aramco contracts

Karan-gas-fieldUS-based engineering group McDermott has been awarded two contracts from Saudi Aramco for projects on the Karan, Safaniya and Zuluf fields in the Gulf

The first project is at Karan-45, with McDermott set to build a new wellhead platform, as well as an auxiliary platform, a jacket and link bridge. It will also undertake subsea installation of a 20-inch flowline and a 15kV composite power and fiber optic cable.

“As we near completion of the 39 structures originally awarded under the Karan contract in March 2009, the experience gained has given us an in-depth knowledge of the specific field characteristics and project requirements,” said McDermott president and chief executive officer Steve Johnson.

Fabrication for the first project will take place at the company’s Jebel Ali facility in the UAE and the offshore scope will be undertaken by vessels from McDermott’s global fleet. The project is scheduled to be completed by the first quarter of 2014.

For the second project McDermott will procure flexible flowlines and build, transport and install pipelines and subsea tie-ins. Procurement and fabrication for this project will also be carried out at the Jebel Ali facility with installation to be completed by the end of Q1 2013.
