The award will see LOC leverage its global expertise and resources, on what is a high profile and material project in Thailand. To be involved with such strong names in the industry, Saipem, Petrofac and Samsung, is a testament to the excellent work LOC has delivered in recent years. We look forward to working with all the JV partners towards delivering this project once the work commences in 2020.”
