Saipem has signed a contract with Eni Angola in relation to the West Hub Development project in Angola, which incorporates the work orders previously assigned and communicated in 2016 and 2017 and adds the scope of work for the development of the Vandumbu field in Block 15/06.

Saipem's Offshore E&C division will carry out engineering, procurement, construction and installation required for the development of the Vandumbu subsea field at deepwater depths ranging from 1300-1500m. Overall the project includes the realization of two production pipelines made of special material, and the laying of umbilicals and service lines of various diameters (subsea, umbilicals, risers & flowlines - SURF).

In addition, Saipem won a new contract in the Gulf of Mexico involving the transportation and installation of the compression platform CA-KU-A1 on behalf of Dragados Offshore de Mexico (DOMSA). Operations will be carried out by the semisubmersible vessel Saipem 7000.

Furthermore, Saipem has been awarded new contracts in offshore drilling. Shell has assigned the drilling of one well, plus an optional well, offshore Norway. Drilling works will be carried out by the 6th generation semisubmersible Scarabeo 8, starting in Q2 2018 and lasting two months.

In the Arabian Gulf, Saipem will carry out drilling activities for the National Drilling Co. (NDC) using the high specs jackup Perro Negro 8 for a period of 10 months beginning in late 2017.
