9/22/2016

SAN DONATO MILANESE -- Saipem has been awarded new contracts and extensions to existing contracts in the onshore drilling segment in the Middle East and South America. The awards have an overall value of $430 million.

In Saudi Arabia, Saipem has been awarded an extension of three years to drilling activities being carried out by ten 2000 HP drilling rigs. This enables Saipem to consolidate its presence in the strategic area of the Middle East, in which it currently has 30 onshore rigs and three offshore rigs.

In South America, in addition to various extensions ranging in duration from two to 24 months for medium and high power rigs in Peru, Colombia, Bolivia and Chile, Saipem has also been awarded a new contract for operations in Argentina, which will be carried out by an hydraulic rig over a period of 18 months. This new award will enable Saipem to return to one of the largest onshore drilling markets in South America, whose positive growth prospects have seen it attract the interest of major international oil companies. Saipem’s presence in Argentina will also enable it to further diversify geographically in the area.
