Saipem has been awarded new contracts in offshore drilling in Romania and Abu Dhabi worth over 160 million USD.

According to one contract, the company will drill a well in Romania’s Black Sea waters, expectedly in the fourth quarter of 2019. Works will be executed by the semi-submersible rig Scarabeo 9, a drilling unit suitable for operations in the area, thanks to its ability to lower its tower which enables crossing of the Bosphorus Strait.

In addition, a contract has been awarded for drilling works offshore Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. The drilling activities will be carried out by the high spec jack u­­­p Perro Negro 8, in continuity with current operations. The contract will have a duration of 4 years.

Saipem has been contracted by ExxonMobil Guyana for the Engineering, Procuring, Construction and Installation of the Subsea Umbilicals Risers Flowlines for the Liza Phase 1 and 2 Development projects.
