- Offshore yards aim to complement efforts to localize the Kingdom's maritime industry
- Projects expected to contribute to Saudi Arabia's development as a center of excellence for maritime engineering, equipment, material manufacturing and fabrication
- New yards will capitalize on infrastructure at Ras Al Khair
The Saudi Arabian Oil Company (“Aramco” or “the Company”), in collaboration with international partners, is establishing two offshore fabrication yards that aim to deliver a more than 200 percent increase in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's offshore fabrication capacity.
The new yards are being constructed in Ras Al Khair in collaboration with National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC) and McDermott International. They are expected to fabricate and assemble offshore platforms, jackets and structures for subsea pipelines.
