Industry News

GE Oil & Gas has signed a five year contract contract for work with Eni East Africa (EEA) on the offshore Mozambique developments it operates.

The agreement will see GE supplying subsea production systems, ancillary equipment and services to the Coral South FLNG project.

The agreement also covers future potential projects, and options for further extensions.

GE’s president of subsea systems and drilling Neil Saunders said: “Coral South FLNG is the first major subsea development in East Africa and provides GE Oil & Gas with the opportunity to affirm our leadership in large bore technology and our standardized portfolio of subsea equipment and services for deep water projects.

“As the only subsea production systems supplier in-country and in East Africa, it provides tremendous opportunities to grow our operations in the region and it further underlines our commitment to drive productivity and cost-efficiency improvements for global projects by building long-term relationships with industry players in place of more outdated transactional approaches.”

GE has secured orders from EEA for the supply of seven xmas trees, three 2-slot manifolds with integrated distribution units, MG rigid jumpers and seven subsea wellheads with spare components.

The deal will also include a complete topside control system with associated services equipment, tools, and technical assistance for installation, commissioning and start-up.
