Block R is a gas development located offshore Equatorial Guinea 140km southwest of Bioko Island and covers an area of 2450sq km with water depths ranging from 1400-1900m.
The scope of engineering and project management services provided by WorleyParsons and its specialist deepwater division, INTECSEA, includes overseeing the front-end engineering and design (FEED) scopes and tendering and evaluation of related engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning packages. Work has commenced in INTECSEA’s UK office.
Ophir and its partners are planning to develop the gas reserves through phased installation of a 20-well subsea production system supplying dry gas to a locally moored floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility with a capacity of 3 MTPA.
Also awarded by Ophir Holdings is a master services agreement to provide engineering support to any of Ophir’s worldwide assets.
“We are pleased to be selected for this innovative project bringing remote gas economically to market and to be providing support to Ophir’s facilities around the world,” says Andrew Wood WorleyParsons CEO.
