Dutch firm Heerema Marine Contractors has sealed a contract with McDermott to transport and install six large jackets.

The work falls within package one of Saudi Aramco’s Marjan increment program, an integrated development project to increase the production capacity from the Marjan offshore field in the Arabian Gulf.

In 2019, McDermott was awarded the second largest engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) contract by Saudi Aramco for the scheme, worth more than £1.1 billion.

The Houston-headquartered engineering giant was picked to supply the offshore gas facilities and pipelines.

Heerema’s contract includes the transportation and installation of six jackets, piles, and boatlandings, which make up part of the GOSP complex.

The jackets are all within the weight range of 4,500 to 6,700 metric tons with a maximum footprint of 90 x 52 meters.

The contractor will transport the jackets from the L&T yard in Oman to the Marjan offshore field using the company’s H-591 barge.

Semi-submersible crane vessel Sleipnir will be used to install the jackets and the 92 piles, which have a combined weight of 24,000 metric tons, in 2023.

The project will be run from Heerema’s Leiden Offices, as well as its soon-to-be-established Al Khobar office in Saudia Arabia.

Heerema said described the Marjan Increment project as an “important step” in the its ambition to expand activities in the Middle East further.

Michel Hendriks, the firm’s transport and installation director, said: “The award of the Marjan jacket scope is evidence of McDermott’s confidence in Heerema’s capabilities to deliver large transport and installation scopes in the Middle East. We are looking forward to returning to the region in 2023 for a collaborative and successful campaign.”
