McDermott International, Inc. announced that one of its subsidiaries has been awarded a cable procurement and installation project for Saudi Aramco in the Safaniya, Abu Safah and Marjan fields.


 


 


The contract, issued under the existing Long Term Agreement, will include the procurement, transportation, installation, hookup and testing of seven composite cables and corresponding anode sleds.


 


 


"McDermott's history of working with Saudi Aramco spans many years and we are delighted to be working together again on this project," said Stewart Mitchell, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Middle East, Caspian and North Sea for McDermott. "I believe our understanding of Saudi Aramco's requirements from previous experience, combined with the proven cable laying abilities of the North Ocean 102, will help to ensure the safe and timely delivery of this project."


 


 


The McDermott engineering office in Al-Khobar will undertake design and installation engineering and procurement, while fabrication will be carried out at the Jebel Ali facility, with cable installation by North Ocean 102. A 15 kV composite cable covering 26.9-kilometres will be installed in six segments in the Safaniya, Abu Safa and Marjan fields and a 35 kV composite cable covering 28.4-kilometres will be installed in one segment in the Marjan field. The offshore campaign is scheduled to commence during the second quarter of 2013.
