Total made a final investment decision (FID) to launch the Zinia 2 deep offshore development in late May. The project will have a production capacity of 40,000 barrels per day (b/d), sustaining Pazflor field production, on stream since 2011.

The value of the contract for Subsea 7 is between $150 million and $300 million. The project is located in Block 17 in water depths from 800 to 1,000 meters.

The contract scope includes the tie-back development of two reservoirs to the existing Pazflor FPSO in Block 17.

Subsea 7 said on Thursday that approximately 36 kilometers of flowlines and 21 kilometers of umbilicals will be installed, with offshore work scheduled in 2020.

Project Management and engineering will be delivered from Subsea 7’s Global Project Centre in Paris, France and local office in Luanda, Angola. Fabrication will take place in Sonamet’s yard in Lobito, Angola.

Subsea 7’s Regional Vice President for Africa, Gilles Lafaye, said: “We look forward to maintaining our long-standing and collaborative relationship with Total through our safe and efficient delivery of the Zinia Phase 2 project.”
