Energy services firm Subsea 7 has been awarded a “sizeable” contract for work off the coast of Egypt.
The deal with the Burullus Gas Company will see Subsea 7 carry out engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning on the West Delta Deep Marine Phase 9b development project offshore Egypt.
Subsea 7 defines a “sizeable” contract to be worth between £37million and £112million.
The Luxembourg-registered firm will connect six new wells into existing subsea facilities using umbilicals and flexible flowlines.
Offshore work is set to begin in the second half of next year.
Project management and engineering work has already started at Subsea 7’s offices in Cairo and Paris.
Fabrication of the subsea structures will be carried out at Petrojet’s yard near Alexandria in Egypt.
Subsea 7’s Regional Vice President for Africa, Gilles Lafaye, said: “This award recognises our track record of good execution and our established local presence in Egypt.
“We look forward to continuing our successful and collaborative relationship with Burullus.”
Operator, Burullus Gas Company, is a joint venture between EGPC, BG Egypt and Petronas.
WDDM is a multi-phase development off the Northern coast of Egypt.
