Subsea 7 awarded Ghana EPCI contract

Norwegian offshore service provider Subsea 7 has been awarded a contract by Tullow for works at the Jubilee field, offshore Ghana.

The engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract is awarded under a consortium comprising Subsea 7 Volta Contractors and NOV Oil & Gas Services Ghana. The total value of the contract is between $50m and $150m.

Subsea 7’s scope of work includes the installation of the buoy turret loading (BTL) system from APL, a group within NOV Completion & Production Solutions, with associated suction piles and EPCI activities including two offloading lines for the BTL and the additional hang-off platform and skid for the FPSO.

The offshore installation works will take place in 2020.

“This award reflects our early engagement in design and engineering and the consortium’s experience in comparable projects within the region. This project builds upon our presence in the Ghanaian market and our long-term relationship with Tullow,” said Gilles Lafaye, Subsea 7’s vice president for Africa region.
