Saudi Arabian Oil Co., or Saudi Aramco, said Sept. 4 that it awarded the first large-scope integrated services contract for its Marjan oilfield to Baker Hughes.
Baker Hughes will provide drilling services, coiled tubing services and drilling fluids engineering services. The value of the contract was not disclosed.
The oilfield services company will begin work this month with a goal to increase the field's capacity. The Marjan complex, off Saudi Arabia's east coast, contains four offshore fields: Marjan, Lawhah, Maharah and Hamur.
The scope of drilling services will include logging-while-drilling, reservoir navigation services and rotary steerable services.
