Boskalis and Lamprell: ascension to Saudi Aramco’s offshore LTA programme

Published by
Oilfield Technology,

The LTA is part of an ambitious offshore investment programme and covers engineering, procurement, construction, transportation and installation (EPCI) contracts to support Saudi Aramco's Offshore Maintain Potential Programme, Oil & Gas Programme, and other offshore work.

Within the scope of the LTA, investments could exceed US$3 billion per annum with an initial programme duration of 6 years, with options by Saudi Aramco to extend for a further 3 plus 3 years. Selected LTA contractors have the right to bid for tenders put out by Saudi Aramco without further technical prequalification or preselection, considerably shortening the lead time through to award.

Lamprell submitted its bid in a consortium with Boskalis, a leading global marine contractor. Lamprell will focus on the engineering, procurement and construction of offshore structures, such as topsides and jackets. Boskalis will be responsible for the transport and installation of these structures, in addition to specialist subsea activities, including survey as well as pipeline and cable installation. This agreement is a very important milestone for Lamprell.

Christopher McDonald, CEO, Lamprell, said: "I am delighted to be able to announce that Lamprell has been chosen by Saudi Aramco to be part of the LTA programme. This is one of the most sought-after and selective processes in the industry and the award advances our strategic aspirations with respect to both Saudi Arabia and the EPCI sector, as well as cementing our relationship with an industry partner in Boskalis. Saudi Arabia is the cornerstone of Lamprell's growth strategy as is evidenced by our investment in the IMI: and we are extremely grateful to have been given this opportunity to participate in the LTA."
