Azule Energy has awarded TechnipFMC work to supply flexible pipe for its Ndungu project offshore Angola.
The company then self reported to the French authorities. The PNF investigation focused on the two West African states and then expanded into work in Angola.
Azule signed the main contracts for the Agogo project on Block 15/06 in February. It awarded riser and flowline supply to TechnipFMC, while Subsea 7 won transportation and installation work.
The alliance will provide engineering, transport and installation of approximately six km of flexible pipes, umbilical and associated subsea structures. The company will carry out the work in water depths of around 800 metres.
