June 25, 2013

FMC Technologies, Inc. was awarded a US $1.2 billion contract from Total Upstream Nigeria Ltd. for subsea equipment for the Egina field, and Saipem won a $3 billion contract for the subsea development of the field.

The Egina field is located in Block OML 130 offshore Nigeria. The field—discovered in 2003—is in water about 1600m deep, 200km off Port Harcourt and 20km southwest of the Akpo field, also on the same license.

FMC Technologies’ scope of supply includes subsea trees and wellheads, manifolds, installation tooling, flowline connection systems, and associated control systems. The equipment is scheduled for delivery beginning in 2015.

Saipem’s scope of work will consist of engineering, procurement, fabrication, installation and pre-commissioning of 52 km of oil production and water injection flow lines, 12 flexible jumpers, 20 km of gas export pipelines, 80 km of umbilicals, and of the mooring and offloading systems.

The marine activities will be performed throughout 2016, continuing to 2Q 2017.

“Egina is the second development of the OML 130 license,” said Yves-Louis Darricarrère, president of Upstream, Total. “With more than 21 million man-hours of local work, the project will make a material contribution to the development of Nigerian economy. After more than 50 years in the country, we are confident that Nigeria will continue to provide a suitable framework to promote investments.”

First oil from Egina is expected at the end of 2017, with output reaching 200,000 bo/d at plateau.

TUPNI has a 24% interest alongside the OML 130 partners: NNPC, SAPETRO (South Atlantic Petroleum) of Nigeria,CNOOC Limited of China, and Petrobras of Brazil.
