Subsea 7 news
Wärtsilä is developing a new heavy construction vessel design for Subsea 7

Subsea 7 has struck a deal worth at least £105million to provide pipelines and carry out topside modifications in Nigeria.

Mobil Producing Nigeria awarded the contract.

Subsea 7 will build and install 12.5miles of pipeline between the Idoho Platform and the onshore terminal.

It will also deliver a shorter pipeline linking the Edop and Idoho Platforms, as well as associated topside modifications and tie-ins at both ends.

Engineering and procurement will start immediately in Lagos, while offshore operations will take place from the third quarter of 2018 to the first quarter of 2019 using the Subsea 7’s Seven Antares vessel.

Gilles Lafaye, Subsea 7’s regional vice president for Africa, said: “Subsea 7 has a long track record of successful operations in Nigeria, enabled by our local joint venture, NigerStar 7.

“This award reflects our strong reputation for successful Conventional project execution in the region and offers us a further opportunity to support the continued development of the country’s oil and gas industry.”
