Saudi Aramco has awarded L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering (LTHE) a new project in the Marjan Field, Saudi Gazette reported.

The project is part of the oil facilities for the Marjan Incremental Development Project and consists of four tie-in platforms, one tie platform module, nine production wellhead deck modules, 217 kilometers of subsea pipelines across 25 segments, and 145 kilometers of subsea cables across 16 segments.

Moreover, the project also includes the replacement of existing control gears at eight existing offshore platforms and tie-in to existing systems.

Saudi Aramco has recently awarded 34 contracts with a total value of $18 billion for the engineering, procurement, and construction of the Marjan and Berri increment programs. The aim is to increase Marjan and Berri oilfields’ production capacity by 550,000 barrels per day (b/d) of Arabian Crude Oil and 2.5 billion standard cubic feet per day (bscf/d) of gas.

The Marjan increment program is expected to include a new offshore gas oil separation plant, and 24 offshore oil, gas and water injection platforms, as well as expanding Tanajib onshore oil facilities and construct a new gas plant. A cogeneration facility will be developed, in addition to a water desalination facility and new transfer pipelines.
