Saudi Arabian Oil Company, Saudi Aramco, has awarded a new contract to National Petroleum Construction Company, NPCC, for four Offshore Platforms and associated Submarine Pipelines, Cables and Tie-ins for Al Safaniya, Zuluf and Berri Oilfields.

"These contracts 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 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 contractors. 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, adding, that carrying out these two new contracts will take 23 months and expressed his full confidence and trust in NPCC staff and their ability to deliver these projects on budget and schedule.

"NPCC team is qualified and well trained, with years of experience of delivering such projects with NOCs and IOCs," he said and assured that that NPCC would continue to pursue its strategy of increasing its market share of international oil and gas engineering, procurement and construction market by exploring new growth opportunities.
