Baker Hughes, a GE company (NYSE: BHGE), has landed a subsea contract from Petrobel for phase two of the Zohr gas field development in the Mediterranean Sea offshore Egypt, a news release stated.
BHGE will provide project management, engineering procurement, fabrication, construction, testing and transportation of a subsea production system. This includes seven manifolds, tie-in systems, long offset subsea and topside control systems, SemStar5 HIPPS (high integrity pressure protection) systems, workover systems and tools, according to the release.
Petrobel is a joint venture between IEOC, an Eni subsidiary in Egypt, and Egyptian General Petroleum Corp. and is in charge of developing the Zohr Field on behalf of PetroSherouk, a joint venture between Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Co. and IEOC.
For the first time, BHGE will also provide 10 e-EHXT trees, manufactured at its subsea center of excellence in Aberdeen, Scotland, the release stated. The trees were designed in collaboration with Eni as part of a standardization exercise, applying field-proven products and systems gained from previous projects with Eni on a range of successful deepwater projects in Africa.
In addition, BHGE will provide wellheads via a separate contract awarded by Petrobel earlier this year.
