MUMBAI, India – Saudi Aramco has awarded the consortium between L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering (LTHE), a fully owned subsidiary of Larsen & Toubro, and EMAS CHIYODA Subsea two engineering, procurement, construction, and installation contracts.
The first is to supply and install four wellhead decks in the Safaniya oil field. Located in the Persian Gulf, it is operated by Saudi Aramco, which has claimed it to be the largest offshore oil field in the world.
The other award is to upgrade 17 platforms in various fields in the Arabian Sea offshore Saudi Arabia.
Last summer, Saudi Aramco awarded the consortium a long-term agreement, a 1.6-billion EPCI contract for the second phase of the Hasbah gas field, which Subramanian Sarma, LTHE’s managing director and CEO, said “is progressing well and in accordance with the plan.”
“We are delighted with the new awards. It is an opportunity for Aramco to benefit from our flagship facility at Hazira as the center of fabrication of the four decks in one of the contracts,” Sarma said. “It is also an opportunity for our consortium to build in-Kingdom skills and capabilities to deliver the brownfield work in the other project [Hasbah].”
