McDermott International has been awarded two contracts by Saudi Aramco for engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) services in the Marjan oil field offshore Saudi Arabia.

The first contract includes the design, procurement, fabrication, and installation, testing and pre-commissioning of the TP-10 tie-in platform, six gas lift topside modules, and associated pipeline and subsea cables. Derrick Barge 50 (pictured) and Derrick Barge 27 from McDermott's vessel fleet are scheduled to be utilised for the contract.

The second contract includes a full suite of EPCI services for the upgrade of two existing platforms related to the installation of associated equipment for electrical submersible pumps (ESPs) and space for a future high integrity pressure protection system (HIPPS), subsea composite cable lay, and topside cable tie-ins.

Work on both contracts have already begun, McDermott said in a statement.
