Subsea 7 Wins Major BP Work
The contract will see Subsea 7 work on all phases of the construction project, from engineering and procurement through to installation and pre-commissioning; across the development’s three subsea fields, Fayoum, Giza and Raven.
The UK based company will use their Seven Borealis and Seven Antares vessels to conduct the Subsea Umbilical Riser & Flowline (SURF) phase of the project, connecting twelve wells across all three fields, with a total of 50 miles (80km) of umbilicals.
The vessels will also lay a total of 137 miles (220km) of pipeline, connecting the three fields to the Idku terminal on the Egyptian mainland.
Work is scheduled to start in 2017, with the initial landfall pipelines being installed, before the main SURF phase of the contract starts in 2018. All engineering and project management will be conducted from Subsea 7’s Global Projects Centre in London.
Mikaelsen added: Our early engagement on this project has enabled BP and Subsea 7 together with DEA to develop an optimised solution for the development of the Giza, Fayoum and Raven fields and demonstrates the effective collaboration between us.”
“We look forward to consolidating our presence in Egypt and building on our long and successful relationship with BP.”
BP was awarded work on the first phase of the project back in december 2015. Work on the West Nile Delta Phase 1 is due to start in the second half of 2016. To see more click here.
