Offshore staff

LUXEMBOURG – Chevron Overseas Congo Ltd. has awarded to Subsea 7 S.A. (Børs: SUBC) an engineering, procurement, installation, and commissioning (EPIC) subsea umbilical, riser, and flowline (SURF) contract for Lianzi field offshore Congo/Angola.

The project includes a 12-in wet insulated production flowline with direct electrical heating. When installed, Subsea 7 says this will be the deepest water to use electrically heated pipe.

The project will use local personnel and resources in Congo and Angola. A significant part of the design and fabrication will be done in Luanda, with additional fabrication work at Lobito by Subsea 7’s Angolan joint venture. All flow-lines will be spooled to the rigid reel-lay ship the Seven Oceans at Subsea 7’s Luanda base in Angola. Angolan and Congolese personnel will join the offshore construction teams during the offshore phase which is scheduled for the second half of 2014.
