McDermott International, Inc. announced that a subsidiary of J. Ray McDermott was awarded a new contract from Saudi Aramco to supply 16 Production Deck Modules ("PDMs") for Saudi Arabia's offshore fields.

"These 16 PDMs form part of Saudi Aramco's Maintain Potential program that aims to increase offshore production capacity," said Bob Deason, President and Chief Operating Officer of J. Ray. "In December of last year, we were awarded work by Saudi Aramco to build the corresponding 16 jackets, which once installed will support these production deck modules."

J. Ray will carry out construction engineering, partial procurement, and fabrication of these modules at the company's Jebel Ali fabrication yard. Each PDM weighs an average of 450 metric tons. First steel will be cut for the modules in October 2006 while procurement and engineering is already underway.

All installation work will be conducted by J. Ray. The first two decks are scheduled for installation by the middle of 2007, followed by 10 decks to be completed by the end of October 2007, with the remaining decks scheduled for installation by the middle of 2008.
