Oil and gas giant BP Monday awarded underwater equipment contracts to industrial service company Baker Hughes, a GE company (Bhge), and to engineering/procurement/construction/installation firm McDermott International, Kallanish Energy learns.
The deal comprises subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines (Surf) and subsea production system (Sps) equipment for the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim natural gas project, located offshore Mauritania and Senegal.
Bhge will provide five large-bore deep-water horizonal Christmas trees (Dhxts), a six-slot dual bore manifold, a pipeline end manifold, subsea distribution units (Sdus), three subsea isolation valves (Ssivs), diver-less connections and subsea production control systems.
The company also sealed an agreement to become a “country partner” for the Senegal phase of Invest in Africa, a project to support local businesses and communities.
McDermott closed a deal, ranging in size between $500 million and $750 million, providing vessels to support installation of pipelines leading to a floating production, storage, and offloading (Fpso) vessel.
“This contract marks a number of firsts: our first significant subsea EPCI (Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation) project in West Africa; the first project using our state-of-the-art pipelay vessel Amazon; and our support of BP’s first entry into Senegal and Mauritania. This project is also of significant importance in support of our aspirations in this region,” said Tareq Kawash, McDermott’s senior vice president for Europe, Africa, Russia and Caspian, in a statement.
