Subsea 7 and OneSubsea awarded Fortuna LNG contract

Subsea Integration Alliance, a partnership between Subsea 7 and Schlumberger’s OneSubsea, has been awarded an integrated contract by Ophir Energy for the Fortuna LNG project offshore Equatorial Guinea.

The engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning contract is valued in the range of $150m-300m and will see four deepwater wells tied-back to a subsea manifold and connected to an FLNG vessel by steel lazy-wave risers.

Operations will commence after the final investment decision, with offshore operations scheduled for 2020.

Gilles Lafaye, VP Africa for Subsea 7, commented: “This award demonstrates the cost effective and collaborative solutions that Subsea Integration Alliance can bring to our clients. We look forward to working with OneSubsea and Ophir Energy to successfully deliver and maintain this FLNG project offshore Equatorial Guinea.”

Ophir Energy has also awarded the partnership the contract for future inspection, repair and maintenance services.
