NPCC wins new Aramco offshore platforms contract

DAMMAM, May 15, 2017

Saudi Aramco has awarded the National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC) a new contract for four offshore platforms and associated submarine pipelines, cables and tie-ins for Al Safaniya, Zuluf and Berri oilfields.

“These EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) contracts for Al Safaniya, Zuluf and Berri oilfields include engineering, procurement, fabrication, load-out, transportation, installation, hook-up and pre-commissioning work of four offshore platforms (SSS wellhead decks) with the associated four subsea pipelines, three submarine cables and downstream tie-ins,” said Aqeel A Madhi, CEO of NPCC.

Madhi added that this third contract comes under the scope of the long-term agreement (LTA) between Saudi Aramco and NPCC, signed in October 2016, to help with offshore oil and gas producing platforms and related facilities in the Arabian Gulf.

Saudi Aramco has signed a six-year agreement with NPCC and other contactors. Under the agreement, contractors will be responsible for delivering a number of offshore oil and gas producing platforms, tie-in platforms, pipelines, power cables, and all the related facilities, as required under the current master plan for Saudi Aramco's offshore fields.

Entering into such a strategic agreement with a global major, Saudi Aramco, is an endorsement of NPCC’s state-of-the-art expertise, Madhi said.

He stated that these two new contracts will be implemented in 23 months.

“NPCC team is qualified and well trained, with years of experience of delivering such projects with NOCs and IOCs,” said Madhi. – TradeArabia News Service
