Total has selected Aker Solutions to provide a subsea production system for the Kaombo Block 32 development in Angola.
The NOK14 billion contract will see Aker Solutions deliver 20 subsea manifolds and 65 vertical subsea wellsets. The order also includes associated controls and work-over and tie-in systems. The first deliveries are scheduled for the second quarter of 2015.
Kaombo is in block 32, in 1400-1900m water depth, about 150km off Angola. The project will develop six fields (Gengibre, Gindungo, Caril, Canela, Mostarda and Louro) in the central and southeast part of the block.
The development will comprise 59 subsea wells, connected to two floating production vessels. It will make use of "hybrid loop" technology for multiphase pumping and transport of fluids.
