The Australian company WorleyParsons has won a contract by Saudi Aramco for the engineering of Marjan Oil Field Development in Saudi Arabia, Offshore Energy Today reported.
Under the terms of the contract, WorleyParsons will be responsible for the project management and front end engineering and design (FEED) services for the offshore oil and gas facilities portion and the onshore upstream and downstream pipelines portion of the oilfield, according to a statement released by the company on July 18th, Energy-pedia informed.
“We are pleased to build on our relationship with Saudi Aramco through this significant contract,” WorleyParsons’ CEO, Andrew Wood, said.
Marjan Oilfield is a super-giant field that straddles the offshore median line with Iran. The majority of oil reserves are placed within the Saudi Arabian portion of the field, according to Wood Mackenzie.
Earlier in 2017, Amec Foster Wheeler signed a five-year contract with Saudi Aramco for facilities required, in line with the integrated oil and gas expansion plan of the Marjan offshore and onshore oilfield in the Eastern province of Saudi Arabia. Through the deal, Amec Foster Wheeler will provide the pre-FEED, FEED, overall program management, and other support services for an additional 300,000 b/d, gas/oil separation train, a world scale greenfield gas processing plant, a cogeneration facility, and modifications to an existing facility to add natural gas liquids fractionation capacity.
