OneSubsea, a Schlumberger company, has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction contract for the first stage of the Zohr gas field, totaling more than $170 million, from Belayim Petroleum Company (Petrobel).
As part of the deal, OneSubsea will supply the subsea production systems for Zohr, which is located in the Shorouk Concession, offshore Egypt. The award follows an accelerated FEED study by OneSubsea in which a multidisciplinary team collaborated with Eni and Petrobel to develop a subsea equipment architecture and control system to validate the handling of high gas volumes, considering reservoir characteristics and subsea equipment specifications.
“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 150km (93 miles),” said Mike Garding, president of OneSubsea, in a company statement.
“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,” he added.
