Saipem has been awarded new onshore contracts for a total
value of approximately US$800 million.
In Mexico, Saipem has been awarded by the Mexican Oil Company PEMEX the EPC contract for two
desulphurization units and two amine regeneration units to be built at two of the client's refineries.
The scope of work will consist of the engineering, procurement and construction, along with commissioning
and testing, of two desulphurization units and two amine regeneration units (URA) and relative auxiliary
systems. The facilities will be built at the Miguel Hidalgo refinery near the town of Tula de Allende,
approximately 150km north of Mexico City and 2,000m above sea level, and at the Antonio M. Amor
refinery, near the town of Salamanca, approximately 300km northwest of Mexico City and 1,700m above sea
The maximization of local content and the procurement and logistics strategy adopted are the key elements
of Saipem's success in awarding this project, which presents particular difficulties for the transportation of
the large-size and heavy equipment that will be assembled at the construction sites.
The works will be completed within a period of 38 months.
Furthermore, in the Middle East and West Africa, Saipem has agreed with its clients various increases in the
scope of its work on existing onshore contracts.
Saipem is organized in three Business Units: Offshore, Onshore and Drilling, with a strong bias towards oil
& gas related activities in remote areas and deepwater. Saipem is a leader in the provision of engineering,
procurement, project management and construction services with distinctive capabilities in the design and
the execution of large scale offshore and onshore projects, and technological competences such as gas
monetization and heavy oil exploitation.
