Subsea 7 Wins Chevron Contract for Offshore Africa Work

Oilfield services firm Subsea 7 announced Tuesday that it has been awarded a $150 million EPCI (engineering, procurement, construction and installation) contract by Chevron for the development of the Lianzi field, located offshore Angola and the Republic of Congo.

The work includes the delivery of a 200-ton module hosting a high-voltage generation system for a new subsea 'direct electrically heated' pipeline cable, an 80-ton flow meter deck extension and various upgrades on the platform.

The project will make use of local personnel and resources in Angola and the Republic of Congo. Onshore fabrication will take place in both countries and will be conducted by Subsea 7's Angolan joint venture, with the offshore works scheduled for delivery in the second half of 2014.

"Following the award to Subsea 7 earlier this year of the subsea installation works for the Lianzi development, we are proud of the award of the topsides modifications works, which demonstrates our proven capabilities in the offshore hook-up and revamping segment," Olivier Carre, Subsea 7's senior vice president for Africa and the Gulf of Mexico, commented in a company statement.
