SISCO awarded LTA for URMPP

Saudi Aramco awards an EPC services contract for the Unconventional Resources Maintain Potential program.

We’ve been awarded by Saudi Aramco a long-term contract (4+2+2 year) as part of the Unconventional Resources Maintain Potential project (URMP). The mandate of the program calls for the development of grassroots gas surface facilities to produce, process and transport gas to satisfy In-Kingdom energy demands. The contract will be executed over a series of projects to be undertaken within the unconventional gas fields in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, namely Jafurah, North Arabia and South Ghawar.

Contract signing ceremony

Jafurah is the largest unconventional gas field in Saudi Arabia, with an estimated 200 trillion standard cubic feet of gas located underground. It is expected to produce 420 million scfd of ethane and around 630,000 barrels per day of gas liquids and condensates — to be used as feedstock for the petrochemicals industry. North Arabia was Saudi Aramco’s first unconventional gas project, coming online in 2018. It supplies more than 200 million scfd of natural gas for lower-carbon power generation and industrial projects. South Ghawar is an unconventional gas field located south and west of the giant Ghawar oil field and is on track to deliver its first 250 million scfd of natural gas in 2023, capitalizing on our existing Master Gas System infrastructure.

“SISCO has a long-standing relationship with Saudi Aramco, and this important contract builds on our extensive experience and delivering numerous successful projects for Saudi Aramco. Signing this contract re-affirms our position as a trusted and reliable contractor of Saudi Aramco. This strategic contract constitutes a pillar in the next chapter of a long-lasting partnership”. said Hadi S. Al Ratimah, Executive Chairman of SISCO.
