Saipem has secured a contract worth USD 4.5bn from Qatargas for the North Field Production Sustainability Offshore Compression Complexes Project – EPC 2 located offshore the northeast coast of Qatar.
The scope of work includes engineering, procurement, fabrication, and installation of two offshore natural gas compression complexes aimed at sustaining the production of the North Field, including two of the largest fixed steel jacket compression platforms ever built, flare platforms, interconnecting bridges, living quarters and interface modules, said Saipem in its statement.
To execute this project, Saipem will leverage on its own assets, know-how, and competencies in offshore engineering, installation, and fabrication, as well as its capability to maximize local content, it added.
According to Saipem, this win represents the largest single offshore contract by total value in the company’s history. It follows the award in early 2021 related to offshore facilities for extraction and transportation of natural gas for the same field and demonstrates the continuity and the quality of Saipem’s performance in Qatar.
With this contract, Saipem accelerates its strategic repositioning in the offshore segments (E&C and drilling) which represent the large majority of the announced order intake year-to-date, further supporting the delivery of its Strategic Plan, it added.
