SAN DONATO MILANESE, ITALY: Saipem has been awarded new engineering & construction onshore contracts in Saudi Arabia and Nigeria worth $1 billion. In Saudi Arabia, Saipem has signed a lump sum engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the naphtha and aromatics package of the Rabigh II Project with Saudi Aramco and Sumitomo Chemical, for the expansion of the integrated refinery and petrochemicals complex in the city of Rabigh, Saudi Arabia.
