Written by  OE Staff Monday, 11 September 2017 03:37

Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE) has won a major subsea contract from Petrobel for phase two of the supergiant Zohr gas field in the Mediterranean Sea, offshore Egypt.

BHGE will provide project management, engineering procurement, fabrication, construction, testing and transportation of a subsea production system, including seven manifolds, tie-in systems, long offset subsea and topside control systems, SemStar5 high integrity pressure protection systems, workover systems and tools, and will support the installation, commissioning and start-up operations.

This project draws on the experience of BHGE in large bore, long offset gas fields and incorporates an integrated HIPPS system. For the first time, BHGE will also provide 10, e-EHXT trees, manufactured at its subsea center of excellence in Aberdeen, Scotland. 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 deep-water projects in Africa. In addition, BHGE will provide wellheads via a separate contract awarded by Petrobel earlier this year.

Lorenzo Simonelli, president and CEO, BHGE, said: “This landmark agreement reinforces our commitment to provide competitive offerings for our partners, strengthened by BHGE’s local presence and cutting-edge technology. The Zohr field is one of the most significant developments of its kind, and through this project we can show the efficiency gains that such complex projects can achieve through our enhanced portfolio.”

Petrobel is a joint venture between IEOC (an Eni subsidiary in Egypt) and Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC) and is in charge of the development of Zohr field on behalf of PetroSherouk, a joint venture between Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company (EGAS) and IEOC.
