Turkish construction company Tekfen won a US$590 million contract from Saudi Aramco to build satellite gas compression plant pipelines for the Haradh gas plant in eastern Saudi Arabia.
The Haradh Gas Plant, located 300km southwest of Dahran, is expected to see its total daily gas production rise by over one billion standard cubic feet with the expansion of the project.
The duration of the project will be 33 months, Tekfec said.
In December, Saudi Aramco awarded a contract to Azmeel Contracting Company for building facilities as part of the gas compression program at Haradh.
Previously, Saudi Aramco signed a number of agreements with several oil and gas service contractors for oil and gas megaprojects designed to enhance the company’s energy sustainability, diversify the economy, expand gas production, and localise domestic content. The agreements are valued at nearly $4.5 billion in total.
Turkey's Tekfen Construction is active in several construction areas, including heavy civil work, refineries, petrochemical plants, pipelines, marine structures, and electrical work in Turkey, the Middle East, North Africa, Asia, and Europe.
