Case Study

West Africa Installation Support

Project description

Infrastructure is in water depths ranging from 1280m to 1650m. To sustain the production plateau, a project was planned to drill and tie in new wells. This required expansion of the existing subsea facilities to accommodate 4 new production wells and 1 water injection well.

A major oil service company was awarded the Transport and Installation contract on behalf of the operator for the subsea flexible flowlines & jumpers, control umbilicals, flying leads and temporary parking structures associated with the development.
