Saipem wins $520m offshore contracts in Congo, Indonesia

(Reuters) - Saipem has won new contracts for off-shore engineering and construction in Congo and Indonesia worth a total $520 million, the Italian oil services group said on Monday.


Saipem said parent company ENI had assigned a consortium led by Saipem a $1.1 billion contract to build a floating production unit (FPU) in Indonesia.


"The FPU will be delivered at site ready for surf hook-up in 34 months," Saipem said in a note.


In Congo, the group won a contract with Aker Solutions to build under-sea structures, including suction anchors, for the Moho project.
By 0912 GMT shares in Saipem rose 0.65 percent against a 0.1 percent rise in Italy's FTSE MIB leading stock index.
