This is the second award McDermott has received in 2015 from Saudi Aramco and represents work scope bid under an existing Long-Term Agreement. In March 2015, the client awarded McDermott a brownfield contract for a power supply system replacement that utilizes McDermott’s full EPCI expertise.
“The project called for an extremely responsive bid phase and for fast-track execution,” said Tom Mackie, McDermott’s Vice President, Middle East. “Our ability to provide schedule certainty — through the provision of integrated EPCI services combined with the right technical solution to meet the challenging time constraints — was key to winning the project.”
Engineering and procurement is expected to be performed by McDermott’s teams in Dubai, U.A.E., and Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia. The jackets are scheduled for fabrication by McDermott’s Dubai, U.A.E.-based fabrication facility. Vessels from the McDermott global fleet are scheduled to undertake the installation work.
