Congo: Subsea 7 Wins USD 600 Mln Lianzi Contract

Congo Subsea 7 Wins USD 600 Mln Lianzi Contract

Subsea 7 S.A. announced the award of an EPIC SURF contract valued at approximately $600 million from Chevron Overseas Congo Ltd for the development of the Lianzi field offshore Congo and Angola.

The technical specifications include a 12” wet insulated production flow-line with direct electrical heating, which would set a record for the deepest electrically heated pipe.

The project will maximize the use of local personnel and resources in Congo and Angola. A significant part of the design and fabrication will be executed in Luanda, with additional fabrication work carried out in Lobito by Subsea 7’s Angolan joint venture. All flow-lines will be spooled to the rigid reel-lay ship the Seven Oceans at Subsea 7’s Luanda base in Angola. Angolan and Congolese personnel will join the offshore construction teams during the offshore phase which is scheduled for the second half of 2014.

Olivier Carre, Senior Vice President for Subsea 7’s Africa and Gulf of Mexico Territory, said: “We are very pleased to be awarded this EPIC contract including the design and procurement of the subsea facilities which fits perfectly with Subsea 7’s capacity to deliver large scale projects. We look forward to working in close cooperation with Chevron to deliver the Lianzi project safely and to the highest standards.”

66kV Offshore Wind 2015

The only networking event on 66kV array grids.

66kV Offshore Wind is a technical event for experts in the wind industry. The goal is to provide a clear path to commercial implementation of 66kV array grids. By exploring developer requirements, WTG capabilities and equipment certification, we hope to reduce both uncertainty and time to implementation for 66kV offshore wind.

The conference aims to:

  • Evaluate project requirements to select 66kV inter-arrays
  • Explore turbine requirements for use in 66kV systems
  • Review certification procedures for higher voltage equipment
  • Evaluate the technology and cost impacts on transformers, cables and switchgears
  • Understand the need for reactive power compensation in offshore substations
