Van Oord Bags Subsea 7 Contracts in Egypt

Van Oord has been awarded two contracts by international contractor Subsea 7 in Egypt.

The assignments include the construction of a landfall and the execution of subsea rock installation works, the company informed.

The projects are part of the West Nile Delta project, which comprises the development of a series of gas fields, located 65 km off the northern coast of Egypt.

The final client is oil and gas company BP. The preparations on site have already started, Van Oord said.

The landfall scope of work consists of the installation of a cofferdam, trenching and pipe pull activities and will be executed in 2017. The landfall location is at the Burrulus terminal near Idku, 50 km from Alexandria.

Van Oord will deploy a trailing suction hopper dredger, backhoe dredger and 600 tonnes winch. Flexible fallpipe vessel Stornes will be deployed this year to execute rock installation activities to prevent upheaval buckling.

Production from the West Nile Delta is expected to be around 1.2 billion cubic feet a day (bcf/d), equivalent to about 30% of Egypt’s current gas production. All the produced gas will be fed into the country’s national gas grid.
