Saudi Aramco received bids on 15 July for an estimated $400m contract to replace 11 offshore pipelines at the Berri oilfield.
The field extends off Saudi Arabia’s east coast, about 50 kilometers north of the export terminal at Ras Tanura. It measures 40km north to south, and 20km from east to west.
Companies from Aramco’s long-term agreement (LTA) group of five offshore engineering contractors were qualified to bid for the project.
All LTA-approved contractors are thought to have submitted a price for the contact.
- Saipem (Italy)
- Larsen & Toubro Hydrocarbon Engineering (India) / Subsea 7 (from the UK, which acquired the Saudi Arabia unit of Singapore’s EMAS Chiyoda)
- Dynamic Industries (Saudi Arabia)
- McDermott International (US)
- National Petroleum Construction Company (UAE)
Recently UAE-based NPCC has won several LTA contracts.
Earlier this month MEED reported that NPCC is in final negotiations for packages known as Bid 29, Bid 30 and Bid 31.
They also recently signed an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract with Saudi Aramco for nine jackets at Zuluf field.
