Dammam Shipyard – catering to the repair needs of Saudi vessels and rigs

The port of Dammam on the Eastern Province of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, home of the national oil company Saudi Aramco, has seen tremendous growth over the last 30 years.

To match this growth, the King Abdulaziz Port of Dammam has increased tenfold over the last decade, to establish itself as a major maritime hub of the Arabian Gulf and the main gateway to the Eastern Province and the capital Riyadh. Its location at the center of the Arabian Gulf and hinterland connections makes it an ideal choice for all connected to the marine, oil and gas industry.

Dammam Shipyard, located inside the Port of Dammam, allows owners to repair vessels, jack-up rigs or drilling platforms without leaving Saudi waters. Its strategic location saves Saudi rig owners a lot of time and money by conducting local repairs.


Part of the Riyadh-based Al Blagha Group, one of the largest marine infrastructure companies in Saudi Arabia, who control and manage a number of maritime/ construction projects in the MENA region, Dammam Shipyard is fully equipped to support the marine, oil and gas industry with two IACS (International Association of Classification Societies) classed floating docks.

A sister outfit, Jeddah Shiprepair, currently works with Saudi Aramco, Coastguard Royal Saudi Naval Forces (RSNF), and solves problems and provides support in marine-based projects for the Royal Saudi Naval Forces, Royal Saudi Coastguard and Saudi Aramco.


   A third division, Dammam Shipyard Offshore Division, was established recently to provide repairs for jack-up and land rigs in the Arabian Gulf and mobile engineering services to drilling and EPCI companies based in Saudi Arabia.
