Subsea 7 Bags West Nile Delta Gig Off Egypt
Subsea 7 has been awarded a sizeable contract (between USD 50 million and USD 150 million) by Burullus Gas Company S.A.E. for the platform extension and tie-in on the first phase of the West Nile Delta development of the Taurus and Libra fields by BP, offshore Egypt.
Engineering and project management work will start immediately and will be undertaken at Subsea 7’s Cairo office and Subsea 7’s Global Projects Centre in London, the company said.
Fabrication of the deck extension and spools will be carried out at the Petrojet Maadia yard near Alexandria.
Offshore work is scheduled to begin in the second half of 2016 using Subsea 7’s Rockwater 2 as the main hook-up and accommodation vessel with Seven Borealis performing the offshore lift of the platform extension and the heavy construction vessel, Seven Arctic, installing the umbilical.
Oeyvind Mikaelsen, Executive Vice President Southern Hemisphere and Global Projects said: “This contract recognises the value we bring to our clients through early engagement to engineer, design and deliver cost-effective solutions for complex field developments. We look forward to expanding our presence in Egypt and building a long, successful and collaborative relationship with Burullus.”
