The Pipeline Replacement Project 8 (PRP-8) involves engineering, procurement, installation, and commissioning (EPIC) of various sizes of flexible flowlines and risers, rigid CRA risers, diving, and an extensive brownfield package.

Subsea7 reported yesterday, April 18, that it had completed and delivered the PRP-8 project in line with BSP expectations, following over a year of preparation.

“PRP-8 is another project close to my heart. I remember well some calls taken during the tender phase with already a clear vision by the Subsea7 team of what would be the end result. I also remember some detailed risk reviews of the topside modification scope,” said David Bertin, Senior Vice President of GPC East.

“PRP-8 is certainly a project we should all be proud of especially for the Kuala Lumpur office. And most importantly, the PRP8 team has always been a role model in terms of visible safety leadership. Well done everyone.”

Last week, Subsea7 reported it had won a new assignment with the Houston-headquartered Talos Energy, as part of which it will work on a subsea tie-back of a commercial oil & natural gas discovery to an existing tension leg platform (TLP) in the Gulf of Mexico.

The deal came after the one the company secured with Norwegian oil & gas company OKEA for a field in the North Sea.
