Subsea 7 has won a contract with Tullow Ghana on the Jubilee field.

The engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract is awarded under a consortium comprising Subsea 7 Volta Contractors and NOV Oil & Gas Services Ghana.

Subsea 7 said the contract was worth between £35m-£115m.

Subsea 7 will install the Buoy Turret Loading (BTL) system, with associated suction piles, and EPCI activities including two offloading lines for the BTL and the additional hang-off platform and skid for the FPSO.

A significant part of the fabrication will be completed locally, in Ghana, and the offshore installation will take place in 2020.

Gilles Lafaye, Subsea 7’s vice president Africa Region, said: “This award reflects our early engagement in design and engineering and the consortium’s experience in comparable projects within the region.

This project builds up on our presence in the Ghanaian market and our long-term relationship with Tullow.”
