On Tuesday, BP awarded French oilfield services firm TechnipFMC a multi-million-dollar contract in Angola.
The integrated engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract covers the Platina field development located in BP’s Block 18 offshore Angola, at water depths ranging from 1,200 to 1,500 meters.
As a significant integrated EPCI, the contract holds a value between $75-$250 million and involves the manufacture, delivery and installation of subsea equipment utilized in the operation of the block. Equipment includes subsea trees, rigid pipelines, umbilicals and flexible jumpers.
“We are very pleased to have been selected by BP for this important deepwater development offshore Angola,” said Arnuad Pieton, TechnipFMC’s President of Subsea. “We are committed to BP and to supporting the Angolan oil and gas industry. This EPCI follows FEED work and will utilize our local assets such as our service base in Luanda and our umbilical factory in Lobito.”
TechnipFMC has been operating in Angola for two decades, and services some of the country’s largest developments, including BP-operated Greater Plutonio and PSVM Block 3, Eni-operated Block 15/06 West Hub and Total-operated Dalia, Kaombo and Pazflor.
