MONTREAL, July 16, 2018 /CNW Telbec/ - SNC-Lavalin (TSX: SNC) subsidiary SNC-Lavalin Engineers and Constructors Inc. has signed a five-year framework agreement to provide International General Engineering Services to Al Khafji Joint Operations (KJO), a joint operations company comprised of Aramco Gulf Operations Company Limited and Kuwait Gulf Oil Company.
The new framework agreement builds upon an existing five-year framework contract for In-Kingdom General Engineering Studies signed in February 2018, and will see SNC-Lavalin provide a range of engineering services to assist KJO with engineering for major projects, including new offshore platforms, jackets and sub-sea pipelines as well as upgrades to existing offshore platforms and jackets, onshore crude and gas handling facilities, gas pipeline networks, utilities, waste water treatment facilities, and instrumentation systems. SNC-Lavalin's teams based in Houston, Texas and Al Khobar in Saudi Arabia will carry out the work, supported by SNC-Lavalin's global centers of excellence in London, Calgary and Mumbai.
"It's a testament to the strong working relationship between KJO and our team, built up over almost a decade working together, that we're able to secure another important framework agreement with KJO," said Christian Brown, President, Oil & Gas, SNC-Lavalin.

KJO is responsible for oil and gas exploration, development and production in the offshore area close to the Saudi-Kuwait border, including the Khafji and Hout oil fields which have been in production since the 1960s.
