Dredging and earthmoving, maritime services provider, Royal Boskalis Westminster, has announced that associate company, Smit Lamnalco, has been awarded a Single Point Moorings (SPM) support contract from Petrofac

The contract is to support SPM operations 20 km off the Al Fao Peninsula for the Iraq Crude Oil Export Expansion Project (ICOEEP).

The annual contract value is approximately US$70mn and services will commence November 2012.

The SPM contract covers operations and maintenance of four SPM systems.
