McDermott nets second major contract from Aramco

Offshore staff

HOUSTON - Saudi Aramco has awarded McDermott International a lump sum contract for brownfield work on various fields offshore Saudi Arabia.

This is the largest single award McDermott has ever secured in the Middle East.

Work on the contract will continue through 2Q 2018. It follows the June 2015 signing of a second long-term agreement between the same parties for engineering, procurement, construction, and installation activities for various fields offshore Saudi Arabia.

The company’s engineering teams in Dubai and in Chennai, India, will provide additional services, with procurement set to be handled by the company’s Global Procurement Office in Dubai.

McDermott vessels will undertake all offshore installations.
