Abu Dhabi-based National Petroleum Constructions Company (NPCC) has bagged a $326m engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract from Saudi Aramco for its offshore platforms and two pipelines at its Al Safaniya oilfields.
The scope of the contract includes construction of a dual pipeline to carry the produced crude from the platform to the gas separation plant.
The project also comprises provision of a captive 20 km subsea cable to deliver additional power supply for the Safaniya Field.
It also includes installation of 30” x 25.5 km long concrete weight coated trunk line (TL), 14 pipeline between the new TP-21 and the onshore Safaniya GOSP-1.
NPCC will be executing the two-year work under the guidance of Saudi Aramco’s Offshore Project Department.
Saudi Aramco president and CEO Amin Nasser said: “These agreements we signed are part of our natural gas expansion, as we add about 1 billion standard cubic feet per day (scfd).
“These new supplies will help reduce domestic reliance on liquid fuels for power generation, enable increased liquids exports, provide feedstock to petrochemical industries, and reduce carbon emissions.”
The NPCC contract was one among the several contracts of worth $4.5bn signed by Saudi Aramco with various oil and gas service contractors to enhance its energy sustainability, expand gas production and localise domestic content.
