Tullow Oil starts subsea studies for Kudu offshore Namibia

Offshore staff

LONDON – Genesis Oil and Gas Consultants has won a subsea front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract for the Kudu gas-to-power project offshore Namibia.

The Kudu field, discovered by Shell and now operated by Tullow Oil, is in 170 m (558 ft) water depth offshore Namibia. Tullow plans three subsea wells tied back to a floating production system.

Gas will be processed offshore to the required specification for export through a 170-km (106-mi) pipeline to a power station onshore at Uubvlei.  

Genesis’ scope includes the flowlines, risers, subsea structures (including a subsea isolation valve), controls, umbilicals, the export pipeline, and a beach valve station. FEED work is expected to be completed later this year.
