SNC-Lavalin, Canada’s EPC contractor said it won a five-year contract to provide international general engineering services to Khafji Joint Operations (KJO).
A joint operations company comprised of Aramco Gulf Operations Company Limited and Kuwait Gulf Oil Company, KJO jointly operates Khafji and Hout oil fields.
The new framework agreement builds upon an existing five-year framework contract for In-Kingdom General Engineering Studies signed in February 2018, SNC-Lavalin said.
The new contract will see SNC-Lavalin provide a range of engineering services to assist KJO with engineering for major projects, including new offshore platforms, jackets and sub-sea pipelines as well as upgrades to existing offshore platforms and jackets, onshore crude and gas handling facilities, gas pipeline networks, utilities, waste water treatment facilities, and instrumentation systems.
SNC-Lavalin’s teams based in Houston, Texas and Al Khobar in Saudi Arabia will carry out the work, supported by SNC-Lavalin’s global centers of excellence in London, Calgary and Mumbai.
“It’s a testament to the strong working relationship between KJO and our team, built up over almost a decade working together, that we’re able to secure another important framework agreement with KJO,” said Christian Brown, president for oil and gas at SNC-Lavalin. “These agreements allow us to work closely as a trusted partner to our clients, providing valuable engineering services over many years.”
KJO is responsible for oil and gas exploration, development and production in the offshore area close to the Saudi-Kuwait border, including the Khafji and Hout oil fields which have been in production since the 1960s.
Earlier in July, Japan’s Toyo Engineering was awarded a third renewal of General Engineering Services Agreement by KJO.
