OneSubsea to provide production systems for BP’s Nile Delta fields

BP Exploration (Delta) and its partner DEA Deutsche Erdoel have awarded OneSubsea with a contract to supply subsea production systems to the partnership’s West Nile Delta Giza/Fayoum and Raven oilfields in offshore Egypt.

Giza/Fayoum will be tied-back to modified onshore Rosetta facilities and integrated with a new onshore plant for Raven, said OneSubsea, which manufactures and develops products, systems and services for the subsea oil and gas market.

OneSubsea plans to supply the long-distance gas fields with large-bore subsea trees, connection and controls systems, plus project engineering, management and testing. The high-pressure Raven field will be installed with manifold systems with high-integrity pressure protection systems (HIPPS).

“BP continues to be successful in driving its standardisation philosophy, and this is the third award to OneSubsea that will utilise the jointly-developed large-bore tree already being deployed to other BP projects,” Mike Garding, CEO of OneSubsea, said in a statement.

In April 2015, OneSubsea was awarded a “multimillion-dollar” contract to supply subsea systems to the BP West Nile Delta Taurus Libra development in offshore Egypt. The contract comprised 10 large-bore gas trees and related subsea equipment.

OneSubsea is a joint venture between subsea installation specialist Cameron and oil services giant Schlumberger.
