HOUSTON – Murphy E&P has awarded Subsea Integration Alliance a deepwater integrated subsea engineering, procurement, construction, installation, and commissioning (EPCIC) contract for the Dalmatian field in the Gulf of Mexico.
The contract calls for the supply and installation of a subsea multi-phase boosting system that includes topsides and subsea controls, as well as a 35-km (22-mi) integrated power and control umbilical.
This is the first EPCIC project award for Subsea Integration Alliance, which was formed in July 2015 between OneSubsea and Subsea 7. The alliance enables a turnkey integrated project from design through supply, installation, and commissioning.
Offshore installation activities are scheduled for 2018.
Mike Garding, president, OneSubsea, Schlumberger, said: “This fit-for-purpose subsea boosting technology will improve Murphy E&P’s ultimate recovery through a cost-effective, record tieback. The innovative business model of the alliance further contributes to greater certainty of cost and return on investment.”
Subsea 7’s CEO Jean Cahuzac added: “This contract recognizes our successful alliance model that brings together Subsea 7’s SURF technology and extensive track record in delivery of large-scale complex EPCIC projects, with OneSubsea’s reservoir and subsea production, and processing systems technologies.
“Our alliance presents Murphy E&P with many opportunities to improve their field economics, and reduces complexity, cost, and risk to achieve production objectives safely, on time and within challenging cost targets.”
