Saudi Arabia based contractor Saudi KAD has secured a contract from Saudi Aramco to deliver strategic pipeline projects related to the Master Gas Program Phase II, and the Fadhili Gas Program.
The scope of the projects will involve the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of a pipeline network totalling 1,118km in length.
The sizes of the pipeline will vary, with the biggest diameter reaching 56 inches and extending over a distance of more than 1,000km.
The projects also include the provision of engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for valve stations, metering systems, launcher and receiver stations, and fiber optic cables, as well as road and rail crossings.
Saudi KAD’s chairman Ahmad Al-Jabr said: "We are deeply honoured by the trust placed in Saudi KAD by Saudi Aramco's award of these strategic projects.
"It clearly demonstrates Saudi Aramco's commitment towards supporting and growing national contractors for the greater benefit of our national economy.
"Saudi KAD will reciprocate this trust through meeting every commitment on the awarded projects, and continuing to pursue our aggressive localization agenda."
Upon completion in 2018, the Master Gas System capacity will increase to 12.5bn standard cb ft daily.
