HOUSTON – Total E&P Angola has awarded the marine warranty services (MWS) contract for the offshore Angola Kaombo project to DNV GL’s Noble Denton Marine Assurance group.
The MWS activities will review the design documentation and execution of critical marine operations. The MWS team will support Kaombo project teams in assuring the project transportation and installations are conducted to recognized guidelines, standards, and client internal requirements.
The Kaombo project is a development at block 32, 150 km (93 mi) offshore Angola. It includes six fields, Gindungo, Gengibre, Caril, Canela, Louro and Mostarda, which will tieback to two converted FPSOs. The water depth in the development area extends from 1,400 m (4,593 ft) at Gindungo to 1,950 m (6,398 ft) at Louro.
The ultra-deepwater development plan comprises the installation of 300 km (186 mi) of flowlines and 20 manifolds to connect 59 wells to the two VLCCs converted into turret moored FPSOs.
