"J. Ray McDermott has been a consistent contractor for Saudi Aramco over the last 40 years. Our first successful collaboration was in 1972, in the Safaniya Field, and most recently with the Long Term Agreement and Maintain Potential projects. We believe that our familiarity with Saudi Aramco's standards has enabled us to maintain our high ranking in their technical evaluations and our ability to win repeat business is the reward for consistently delivering excellence on Saudi Aramco projects."
said Stewart Mitchell, Vice President and General Manager for J. Ray's Middle East and India operation.
"This most recent award is a significant project, comprising four wellhead complexes each of which has a wellhead platform topside with gas, chemical injection, and controls facilities as well as a bridge connected auxiliary platform, associated flare bridges and stacks. The four wellhead complexes are clustered around a tie-in platform with similar facilities. The project also includes intrafield pipelines as well as 110 Km trunkline to the shore and all subsea power distribution cables," said Ed Gedeon, J. Ray McDermott's Vice President for Middle East Projects.
J. Ray's Middle East will undertake the turnkey aspects of the project from its headquarters in Jebel Ali.
The fabrication scope amounts to topsides and jackets weighing a total of 27,000 metric tons and will utilize J. Ray's new cladding facility in Jebel Ali, which, with its state-of-the-art computerized vertical and horizontal cladding systems, is capable of welding high integrity corrosion resistant alloys. J. Ray will also perform all of the offshore installation work.
