Saudi Aramco announced on 6 April the award of two offshore lump-sum turnkey (LSTK) contracts to Jebel Ali-based J Ray McDermott (Middle East) and the local McDermott Arabia Company, both part of US-based J Ray McDermott, for the installation of production facilities and pipelines. McDermott beat off competition from three other fabricators Abu Dhabi-based National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC), an Egyptian team of Petrojet with Arab Company for Projects & Maintenance and Italy’s Saipem to win the contracts totalling $350 million. Technical and commercial bids for both contracts were submitted in late December (MEED 13:1:06).
