Subsea 7 S.A. has secured a ‘substantial’ services contract with Mobil Producing Nigeria Unlimited (MPN) to support the Production Uplift Pipeline Projects (PUPP) in shallow water, offshore Nigeria.
The contract scope includes engineering, construction, transportation, installation and pre-commissioning of 12 miles of 24” Corrosion Resistant Alloy (CRA) pipeline between the Idoho platform and an onshore terminal, and of 1 mile of 24” CRA pipeline between the Edop and Idoho platforms, as well as associated topside modifications and tie-ins at both ends.
Engineering and procurement will start immediately, while offshore operations will take place from the third quarter of this year, Subsea 7 revealed.
“Subsea 7 has a long track record of successful operations in Nigeria, enabled by our local joint venture, NigerStar 7,” Subsea 7’s regional vice president for Africa, Gilles Lafaye, said in a company statement.
“This award reflects our strong reputation for successful conventional project execution in the region and offers us a further opportunity to support the continued development of the country’s oil and gas industry,” Lafaye added.
Subsea 7 defines a substantial contract as being worth between $150 million and $300 million.
