Aramco opens massive platform for marine work

Riyadh—Saudi Aramco has launched the largest platform for its marine operations which has been manufactured at the King Abdul Aziz Port in Dammam.
The platform is fixed in the undersea coral reef and will receive the production of eight marine oil platforms, which will be transferred through pipeline to Workshop No. 2 to separate gas in Al-Murjan oilfield. The platforms distribute electricity which reaches the eight platforms through electric cables that are fixed under the sea.
Ahmad Al-Saadi, higher president for technical service at Saudi Aramco, said the launch of this huge platform, which weighs 3,500 tons, is a big achievement for Aramco, which hopes to develop its marine resources. This helps to build and support local manufacturing abilities, by building strategic partnerships with local manufacturers, which shows Aramco to the world as a competent local manufacturing company.
Morjan, T. B. 9 manufacturing is part of a contracting company that has been allocated to the Saipem and Star consortium, within Aramco’s program to maintain the level of control in covered fields. The contracting also includes the manufacturing and installation of four platforms to produce oil.—Agencies
