The confirmation comes after Aramco revealed on Tuesday that it had penned deals with 16 companies worth a combined $18 billion for contracts covering both its Marjan and Berri incremental development projects.

Upstream reported in early June that Hyundai E&C was the front runner for packages six and 12 for Marjan.

The South Korean fabricator said on Wednesday that the package six deal is worth $1.48 billion and involves the expansion of an existing gas-oil separation plant with 300,000 barrels per day processing capacity.

Package 12, which calls for building of a utility facility for an offshore gas processing plant, is worth $1.25 billion.

Both contracts will take 41 months to complete for Hyundai E&C.

Among the raft of engineering, procurement and construction deals handed out by Aramco, US player McDermott International on Wednesday confirmed two huge offshore contracts – packages one and four – for Marjan. Package one will be undertaken with China’s Offshore Oil Engineering Corporation (COOEC), with McDermott as the lead contractor.

Italy’s Saipem has also confirmed it was the winner of two onshore deals – one each for Berri and Marjan.

Upstream reported this week that Aramco had handed a consortium of two India's Larsen & Toubro and Oslo-listed Subsea 7 for the second offshore package involving its Marjan incremental development project.

Together the Berri and Marjan incremental projects aim to add 550,000 barrels per day of crude production and 2.5 billion cubic feet per day of gas production at Saudi Aramco.
