Subsea 7 awarded contract offshore US Gulf of Mexico
Subsea 7 S.A. has been awarded a sizeable SURF (subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines) contract by BP for the Manuel project in the US Gulf of Mexico, the Company said in a press release.
Project execution will be delivered by Subsea Integration Alliance (SIA), which is a partnership between Subsea 7 and OneSubsea Schlumberger, to provide BP with a fully integrated solution.
The Manuel project comprises a two well development tie-back to the Na Kika production facility, working at water depths of up to 1,900 meters. The project’s SURF workscope includes engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of an electrically heat traced flowline (EHTF) and a steel catenary riser and all associated subsea structures as well as front-end engineering and design (FEED). Offshore operations are due to commence in the fourth quarter of 2019.
Early engagement between SIA and BP has enabled the project to be the first in the US to use Subsea 7’s EHTF technology, which enables cost-effective longer tie back solutions.
Subsea 7 is one of the most experienced providers of seabed-to-surface services in the energy industry, Subsea 7’s offshore operations span five decades, successfully completing over 1000+ projects.
Subsea Integration Alliance is a worldwide non-incorporated partnership between OneSubsea, Schlumberger and Subsea 7 developed to jointly design, develop, and deliver integrated subsea development solutions through the combination of subsurface expertise, subsea production systems (SPS), subsea processing systems, subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines systems (SURF), and life of field services. Its goal is delivering complementary technology and expertise that help customers extend field life and lower production costs, ensuring greater certainty of recovery and return on the investment.
