change text size

Total S.A. subsidiary Total Upstream Nigeria Ltd. awarded contracts to Saipem S.p.A. and FMC Technologies for the subsea Egina field development Tuesday.

Under a contract valued at $3 billion, Saipem will provide engineering, procurement, fabrication, installation and pre-commissioning of 32 miles of oil production and water injection flow lines, 12 flexible jumpers, 12.4 miles of natural gas export pipelines, 50 miles of umbilicals, and the mooring and offloading systems. Marine activities will be conducted through 2016 and continue to the second quarter of 2017.

Fabrication will take place almost entirely in Nigeria; most of these activities will occur at the Saipem Rumoulumeni Yard in Port Harcourt.

Total also awarded a $1.2 billion contract to Houston-based FMC Technologies to supply subsea equipment for the Egina field offshore Nigeria Tuesday.

Under the contract, FMC will deliver subsea trees and wellheads, manifolds, installation tooling, flowline connection systems, and associated control systems starting in 2015.

"This significant project will be the largest subsea project to date in West Africa and is supported by our local content strategy as well as by recent expansions to our facilities in Lagos and Onne," said Tore Halvorsen, senior vice president of subsea technologies for FMC, in a June 25 press release.

Egina is located in Block OML 130. Discovered in 2003, the field is located in approximately 5,249 feet of water approximately 124 miles of Port Harcourt and 12.4 miles southwest of the Akpo field on the same license.

Earlier this week, Total reported it had been authorized by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation to award the main engineering procurement and construction contracts for the development of Egina.
