OneSubsea has been awarded a $170million engineering, procurement and construction contract from Belayim Petroleum Company for the Zohr gas field offshore Egypt.
The Schlumberger owned firm will supply the subsea production systems for the first stage of the field, located in the Shorouk Concession.
“Zohr is one of the largest gas fields discovered in the Mediterranean Sea to date, and is also the world’s second longest step-out, a distance greater than 150 km. This step-out will be enabled by OneSubsea controls systems with fiber-optic communications technology,” said Mike Garding, president, OneSubsea.
“Our supplier-led approach to the field development, coupled with our FasTrac program capability, and our integrated offering that includes flow assurance, subsea production system and landing string capabilities, will help Petrobel meet their first gas commitment.”
The award follows an accelerated FEED study by OneSubsea in which a multidisciplinary team collaborated with Eni and Petrobel to develop the subsea equipment architecture and control system to validate handling of high gas volumes, considering reservoir characteristics and subsea equipment specifications.
The scope of contract includes six horizontal subsea trees, intervention and workover control systems, landing string, tie-in, high-integrity pressure protection system, topside and subsea controls and distribution, water detection and salinity monitoring provided by the AquaWatcher water analysis sensor and installation and commissioning services.
The FasTrac program comprises a strategic inventory capability with the flexibility to configure the system to the customer needs and deliver on a fast turnaround.
