Bourbon has secured its first pipelay contract from Total Gabon for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of 25 km of 6” rigid pipeline as part of the Hylia water injection project using Zap-Lok technology.
For the execution of this contract, Bourbon is subcontracting Cortez Subsea for pipelay equipment and Wood Group for the pipeline design and pipelay engineering.
Operations are scheduled to start in Q2 2017 offshore Gabon with a multi-purpose supply vessel (MPSV) from the Bourbon Evolution 800 series.
Remotely operated vehicle (ROV) services and a platform supply vessel (PSV), all provided by Bourbon, will also support survey and air diving operations for spool and riser installation.
“We are very proud of the trust that Total has placed in us for this first pipelay EPCI contract. Such a comprehensive project allows Bourbon and its Gabonese partners to demonstrate our capacity to bring the best integrated services and cost-effective solutions to our clients,” said Patrick Belenfant, Bourbon’s senior vice president Subsea Services.
