Subsea 7 wins further West Nile Delta installations

Offshore staff

LUXEMBOURGBP and partner DEA have awarded Subsea 7 an EPCI contract for development of the Giza, Fayoum, and Raven gas fields offshore Alexandria, Egypt.

The subsea scheme is the second phase of the West Nile Delta project, where field development will be in water depths of up to 800 m (2,625 ft).

Subsea 7’s scope relates to subsea infrastructure associated with 12 wells and includes 80 km (49.7 mi) of umbilicals, 220 km (137 mi) of pipelines, and installation of the export lines from the subsea location to the onshore Idku terminal.

The company will conduct engineering and project management from its Global Projects Centre in London.

Offshore installation will be in two stages, starting in 2017 with the landfall and shallow-water pipelay. Stage 2, beginning in 2018, will involve installation of deepwater pipelines and execution of the SURF scope.

Seven Borealis and Seven Antares will perform the pipelay, with the heavy construction vessel Normand Oceanic used for other construction activities.

Øeyvind Mikaelsen, executive vice president Southern Hemisphere and Global Projects, said: “Our early engagement on this project has enabled BP and Subsea 7 together with DEA to develop an optimized solution for the development of the Giza, Fayoum, and Raven fields.”
