Van Oord secures Subsea 7 offshore contracts in Egypt

Dutch dredging and offshore support company Van Oord has been awarded two contracts by international contractor Subsea 7.

The assignments include the construction of a landfall and the execution of subsea rock installation works in Egypt. The projects are part of BP’s West Nile Delta project, which comprises the development of a series of gas fields.

The landfall scope of work consists of the installation of a cofferdam, trenching and pipe pull activities and will be executed in 2017. Van Oord will deploy a trailing suction hopper dredger, backhoe dredger and 600 tonnes winch. Flexible fallpipe vessel Stornes will be deployed this year to execute rock installation activities to prevent upheaval buckling.
