Australian energy giant Woodside has awarded Halliburton nine conditional contracts for drilling and completion services for SNE Field Development Phase 1 offshore Senegal.

The drilling campaign, which is due to start in late 2020 or early 2021, is for drilling and completing 18 wells with up to eight optional wells over an estimated 3-4 year term, Halliburton said on Monday.

The contracts awarded include drilling, logging, cementing, lower completions, e-line/slick line, coiled tubing and well testing services.

“We are excited to win this work and to provide services from our multiple product service lines on what is likely to be the first deepwater oil development in Senegal,” said Shannon Slocum, senior vice president of the Eurasia, Europe and Sub-Sahara Africa region for Halliburton.

“In addition to our services, Halliburton will invest in Senegal through constructing facilities, hiring local staff and potentially utilizing local vendors/suppliers.”

Initial engineering work will begin in Perth, Australia, later this year, and then will transfer to Dakar, Senegal in 2020.

This multi-contract award follows an earlier conditional award to Halliburton in December 2018 for drilling and completion fluids services.

Contracts are conditional on an SNE Field Development positive final investment decision (FID) and full funding release (FFR).

Woodside is the operator of the Rufisque Offshore, Sangomar Offshore and Sangomar Deep Offshore (RSSD) joint venture, which contains the SNE field.

The Phase 1 development concept for the SNE field is a stand-alone FPSO facility with subsea infrastructure. It will be designed to allow subsequent SNE development phases, including options for potential gas export to shore and for future subsea tiebacks from other reservoirs and fields.

The contract for front-end engineering design (FEED) for the SNE field development Phase 1 FPSO vessel was awarded last February to Japan’s MODEC. The FPSO will be designed to produce around 100,000 barrels of crude oil per day, with the first oil production targeted in 2022. The FPSO will be moored in water depth of approximately 800 meters.
