SIA Bags Very Large Sangomar Contract
Subsea 7 has announced the award of a “very large contract” by Woodside to Subsea Integration Alliance (SIA) for the Sangomar Field Development Phase-1 project offshore Senegal.
The contract was initially awarded in December 2018 subject to final investment decision, which has now occurred.
The project work scope covers the engineering, procurement, construction, transportation and installation of the SURF system and associated subsea production systems, Subsea 7 noted. Offshore activities are expected to take place from 2021 to 2023.
SIA is a non-incorporated strategic global alliance between Subsea 7 and OneSubsea, the subsea technologies, production and processing systems division of Schlumberger.
“We are delighted to expand our operations to Senegal adding to our network of local presences in West Africa,” Gilles Lafaye, Subsea 7’s vice president of Africa, said in a company statement.
“Subsea 7 brings decades of experience in working safely and reliably in the region as well as bringing global engineering and execution capabilities to support Senegal as it increases energy production,” he added.
Stuart Fitzgerald, deputy CEO of Subsea Integration Alliance LLC, said, “Subsea 7 and OneSubsea, through our Subsea Integration Alliance, have been working closely with Woodside since before the FEED award”.
“This award reflects our successful experience of previous projects delivered by the Alliance and a strong relationship built over many years with Woodside,” he added.
On January 9, Woodside revealed that the Government of Senegal had granted the exploitation authorization for the Sangomar field development. On January 10, the company said Sangomar Field Development Phase 1 had been approved by the Rufisque Offshore, Sangomar Offshore and Sangomar Deep Offshore joint venture.
The Sangomar field, formerly the SNE field, will be Senegal’s first offshore oil development. First oil production is targeted in early 2023.
