French engineering and oilfield services firm Technip revealed that a consortium comprising two of its subsidiaries, Angoflex Ltda (owned jointly with Sonangol) and DUCO Ltd., has been awarded by Acergy major umbilical contracts for the CLOV field development

Operated by Total (NYSE:TOT), the CLOV development is located in Block 17 offshore Angola in water depths of up to 1,410 meters. Incorporating multiple fields, including Cravo, Lirio, Orquidea and Violeta, CLOV is being developed via an FPSO.

The contracts cover the supply of 76 kilometers of dynamic and static production and water injection umbilicals, which will be manufactured at the Angoflex facility in Lobito, Angola. The umbilicals are scheduled for delivery in 2013 and will be the first to be delivered following the expansion of the plant capacity. 

The expansion includes the installation of two large manufacturing carousels, an upgrade to the existing helical lay-up machine and the installation of a load-out path. This expansion will allow Angoflex Ltda to fabricate 100% of the CLOV umbilical workscope in its Lobito manufacturing plant. It constitutes a significant milestone in Angoflex shareholders’ objective to maximize Angolan content. 

The award of the contracts continues Angoflex’s proven track record in the supply of umbilicals for deepwater Block 17 in Angola, including Dalia & Pazflor projects.
