J. Ray Wins More Work in Saudi Arabia

March 12, 2009

J. Ray McDermott, S.A., a subsidiary of McDermott International, Inc., announced that it was recently awarded additional work under the Long-Term Agreement (LTA) with Saudi Aramco.

This latest project, which is expected to continue through 2010, consists of the procurement, fabrication and installation of three decks, jackets, associated pipelines, and the installation of three new shallow water crude oil pipelines, totaling 15 kilometers in length, in the South Safaniya oil field, offshore Saudi Arabia. The pipelines will divert crude oil production flow from three existing platforms to other facilities before reaching the Safaniya onshore Gas Oil Separator Plant. 

J. Ray McDermott’s first project for Saudi Aramco in the Safaniya field was in 1972 when it constructed 14 platforms and laid 77 kilometers of pipeline.

Other recently awarded Saudi Aramco work under the LTA includes the procurement, fabrication and installation of a jacket and deck for the Berri field and a four-pile jacket in the Karan field, offshore Saudi Arabia.

Rabih Makarem, LTA Project Manager for J. Ray McDermott, added, “We were recently awarded the 2007 Contractor Excellence Award and two Safety Recognition Awards for our performance on Saudi Aramco projects.”
