Subsea 7 said on June 13 it has been awarded a sizeable engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning contract by Burullus Gas Co. for the West Delta Deep Marine Phase 9b development project, offshore Egypt.
The scope includes connecting six new wells into existing subsea facilities using umbilicals and flexible flowlines. Project management and engineering work has already commenced at Subsea 7’s office in Cairo, Egypt and Paris, France. Fabrication of the subsea structures and spools will be carried out at Petrojet’s yard near Alexandria, Egypt.
Offshore work is scheduled to commence in the second half of 2019.
“This award recognizes our track record of good execution and our established local presence in Egypt. We look forward to continuing our successful and collaborative relationship with Burullus,” Gilles Lafaye, Subsea 7’s regional vice president for Africa, said.
