SAFANIYA 264: FIRST JACKET FROM McDermott DAMMAM

McDermott International recently celebrated a major milestone with the load-out and installation of the first jacket fully fabricated by the Company at its recently opened Dammam fabrication yard in Saudi Arabia. The Safaniya 264 Jacket is part of McDermott’s Long Term Agreement II (LTA II) scope of work with Saudi Aramco. The current scope of work being done at the Dammam yard covers four jackets, eight bridges and more than 70 subsea pipeline spools, as well as onshore support work. The Dammam facility was opened in 2016 to support McDermott’s growing Middle East operations and expand the Company’s regional capacity. It reflects McDermott’s commitment to supporting Saudi Arabia and key client Saudi Aramco in their localization efforts. “The load-out of the first jacket from our Dammam fabrication facility marks another milestone in McDermott’s long term commitment to Saudi Arabia and their Vision 2030,” said Linh Austin, McDermott’s Vice President of Middle East and Caspian. “Not only have we delivered our first jacket from our new facility, we’ve done it to Saudi Aramco’s schedule; all with no lost time incidents.” The jacket has been installed in the Safaniya oil field, located 125 miles (200 km) north of Dhahran in the Arabian Gulf, by McDermott’s Derrick Barge 32 vessel. This milestone follows McDermott’s recent announcement that it had signed a strategic Memorandum of Understanding with Saudi Aramco for a long-term land lease at the new maritime facility at Ras Al Khair in Saudi Arabia, currently being developed by Saudi Aramco.
