J. Ray McDermott, S.A. (J. Ray), a subsidiary of McDermott International, Inc., has been awarded a project to upgrade crude gathering and power supply facilties in Saudi Aramco’s Safaniya field. The facility, infrastructure upgrade and electrification project will help sustain crude oil production to meet Saudi Aramco’s Maximum Sustainable Capacity targets for the field by 2013.

Steve Johnson, President and Chief Executive Officer of J. Ray said, “Innovative engineering, global procurement strength, installation by our new pipelay barge LB32 in tandem with other vessels from our fleet, and our firm understanding of Saudi Aramco’s requirements enabled us to develop an execution strategy to deliver this significant project to meet the customer’s demands.”

The work includes engineering, procurement, construction, and installation – EPCI – of a new tie-in platform (STP-20 ) with a 6,000-tonne topside, a new electrical deck module for an existing platform (STP-18), a 53-kilometer, 42-inch trunk line, four new in-field lateral flowlines and valve skids, 156 kilometers of subsea electrical cable, and the modification and electrification of nine existing wellhead platforms.

Saudi Aramco has continuously employed ground breaking methods and technology for the electrification of the Safaniya field, incorporating the largest power cables in the region.

Engineering design work will begin in the second quarter of 2010 with contract completion expected during 2013. The multi-faceted nature of this project will allow J. Ray to demonstrate its full range of services, from design development, detailed engineering, procurement, construction of new facilities, installation of platforms, pipelines and cables, as well as brownfield modifications to existing facilities from its regional headquarters in Jebel Ali. J. Ray has successfully executed Maintain Potential Projects for Saudi Aramco in the Berri, Marjan, Zuluf, Abu-Safah and Safaniya fields since the early 1980’s.
