Schlumberger offshoot wins Egypt offshore contract
OneSubsea has been awarded an EPC contract in Egypt for the newly discovered Zohr offshore gas field
OneSubsea, a Schlumberger company, has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract in Egypt for the newly discovered Zohr offshore gas field.
As per the contract, from Belayim Petroleum Company (Petrobel) and totalling more than $170mn, OneSubsea will supply the subsea production systems for the first stage of the Zohr gas field, located in the Shorouk Concession.
The award follows an accelerated FEED study by OneSubsea in which a multidisciplinary team collaborated with Eni and Petrobel to develop the subsea equipment architecture and control system to validate handling of high gas volumes, considering reservoir characteristics and subsea equipment specifications.
“Zohr is one of the largest gas fields discovered in the Mediterranean Sea to date, and is also the world’s second longest step-out, a distance greater than 150km. This step-out will be enabled by OneSubsea controls systems with fiber-optic communications technology,” Mike Garding, president, OneSubsea, said.
“Our supplier-led approach to the field development, coupled with our FasTrac program(me) capability, and our integrated offering that includes flow assurance, subsea production system and landing string capabilities, will help Petrobel meet their first gas commitment,” Garding was quoted as saying in a press release.
The scope of the contract includes six horizontal SpoolTree subsea trees, intervention and workover control systems, landing string, tie-in, high-integrity pressure protection system, topside and subsea controls and distribution, water detection and salinity monitoring provided by the AquaWatcher water analysis sensor, and installation and commissioning services.
The FasTrac programme comprises a strategic inventory capability with the flexibility to configure the system to the customer needs and deliver on a fast turnaround.
