Offshore staff

HOUSTONOneSubsea has won an engineering, procurement, and construction contract totaling more than $170 million from Belayim Petroleum Co. (Petrobel).

The Schlumberger company will supply the subsea production systems for the first stage of the Zohr gas field in the Shorouk concession offshore Egypt

The scope of contract includes six horizontal SpoolTree subsea trees, intervention and workover control systems, landing string, tie-in, high-integrity pressure protection system, topsides and subsea controls and distribution, water detection and salinity monitoring provided by the AquaWatcher water analysis sensor and installation and commissioning services. The FasTrac program comprises a strategic inventory capability with the flexibility to configure the system to the customer needs and deliver on a fast turnaround.

The award follows an accelerated front-end engineering and design 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.

Mike Garding, president of OneSubsea, said: “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 150 km (93 mi). This step-out will be enabled by OneSubsea controls systems with fiber-optic communications technology.

“Our supplier-led approach to the field development, coupled with our FasTrac program capability, and our integrated offering that includes flow assurance, subsea production system, and landing string capabilities, will help Petrobel meet their first gas commitment.”
