Total made a final investment decision (FID) to launch the Zinia 2 deep offshore development in Block 17 offshore Angola in late May.

About a month later, in late June, Total awarded a substantial contract for the engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning of the subsea flowlines and umbilicals for the Zinia Phase 2 project to  Subsea 7.

On Monday, July 2 TechnipFMC also revealed its role in the project. The company said that its contract with Total covers the engineering, procurement and construction of subsea equipment including nine subsea tree units as well as wellheads, subsea control systems, connection systems and associated equipment.

This contract also covers support services, performed by TechnipFMC in Angola, for the assembly, test, mobilization and installation.

Hallvard Hasselknippe, President of TechnipFMC’s Subsea business, commented: “We are excited to be selected by Total for another of their important developments offshore Angola, illustrating our long-term, collaborative relationship.”

The Zinia 2 project will have a production capacity of 40,000 barrels per day (b/d), sustaining Pazflor field production, which has been on stream since 2011. Zinia 2 comprises nine wells in water depths ranging from 600 to 1,200 meters, tied back to the Pazflor FPSO with a budget of $1.2 billion.
