"Winning this project signifies our customer's confidence in our capabilities to handle major projects with successful results," said Bob Deason, Chief Executive Officer of J. Ray.

The project will be executed by J. Ray's Jebel Ali, UAE-based project team and utilize the region's marine equipment. The scope of work also involves laying a total of 138 kilometers of 38" diameter combined power and fiber-optic cables interconnecting the wellhead platforms with the onshore facilities, as well as two 0.5 kilometer 22" diameter intra-field pipelines. These intra-field pipelines are fabricated with corrosion resistant alloy material.
