French oilfield services firm TechnipFMC has announced a multi-million pound deal with BP in Angola.
The agreement, an integrated engineering, procurement, construction and installation (iEPCI) contract, with BP is in Angola for the Platina field development.
It is located offshore Angola in Block 18 at water depths ranging from 1,200 to 1,500 metres.
The deal is understood to be between £57 million and £190m.
The contract covers the manufacture, delivery and installation of the subsea equipment including subsea trees, a production manifold with associated subsea control and connection systems, as well as rigid pipelines, umbilicals and flexible jumpers.
Arnaud Pieton, president of subsea at TechnipFMC, said: “We are very pleased to have been selected by BP for this important deepwater development offshore Angola.
“We are committed to BP and to supporting the Angolan oil and gas industry.
“This iEPCITM follows iFEEDTM work and will utilise our local assets such as our service base in Luanda and our umbilical factory in Lobito.”
Platina was discovered in 1999 and will be developed as a tieback to the Greater Plutonio floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel. BP and Sonangol agreed to make progress on the field in late 2018, with the aim of reaching first oil by late 2021 or early 2022.
