An emerging sweet spot for the oil and gas industry, Africa is accelerating exploration and production developments in both its onshore and offshore sectors. National oil corporations are partnering with industry heavyweights from around the globe to rebuild infrastructure in the world's second largest continent. Vast oil and gas reserves are harnessed within Africa's respective countries, as well as the surrounding waters of the Mediterranean Sea to the north, the Suez Canal and Red Sea to the northeast, the Indian Ocean to the southeast and the Atlantic Sea to the west.
Umbilicals serve as the lifeline to subsea equipment by transferring power, chemicals, communications and more through an assembly of steel tubes and hoses. Risers serve as a connection between subsea field developments and production or drilling facilities by transferring produced fluids from the seabed to the surface or to transfer injection fluids, control fluids, or lift gas from the surface to the ocean floor. Flowlines lay on the seabed and transport production or injection fluids from one subsea structure to another.
