Mustang to Design Second West Africa CPT for Chevron

Mustang Engineering, a subsidiary of international energy services company John Wood Group PLC, has been selected by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Services to perform detail design services for a Compliant Piled Tower (CPT) for the Tombua-Landana Development Project located within the eastern portion of Block 14 in approximately 1,200 feet of water offshore, Angola. The field is operated by Cabinda Gulf Oil Company LTD, a wholly owned subsidiary of Chevron Corporation. The tower will be designed to support full drilling and production operations with a Tender Assist Drilling Rig, a topsides weighing in excess of 36,000 short tons and 38 well slots.

The CPT will be the second such bottom-founded structure outside of the Gulf of Mexico. Mustang designed the first CPT located offshore West Africa for the nearby Benguela-Belize development, also in Block 14 in 1,280 feet of water. The unique CPT design allows for surface production trees, excellent constructability characteristics and appreciably less cost than conventional structures due to its reduced steel requirements.

Mustang is an independent services provider to the global oil, gas, chemical and industrial industries. The company specializes in design, engineering, procurement, project management and construction management and offers these services through its six business units: upstream oil and gas, midstream, pipeline, automation and control, refining and petrochemicals, and process & industrial.
