Subsea Integration Alliance between OneSubsea, a Schlumberger company, and Subsea 7 has secured a contract from Murphy Oil for engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) of subsea multiphase boosting system for the Dalmatian Field in the Gulf of Mexico.
This is the first EPCIC project award for Subsea Integration Alliance, which was formed July 2015, and represents the industry’s longest deepwater subsea multiphase boosting tieback.
The scope of the contract calls for the supply and installation of a subsea multiphase boosting system including topside and subsea controls, as well as a 35 km integrated power and control umbilical.
“OneSubsea has a strong track record of innovation, including world-leading experience in subsea multiphase boosting systems. More than 35 projects, including some 100 subsea pumps, have been delivered since 1994,” said Mike Garding, president, OneSubsea, Schlumberger. “This fit-for-purpose subsea boosting technology will improve Murphy E&P’s ultimate recovery through a cost-effective, record tieback. The innovative business model of the alliance further contributes to greater certainty of cost and return on investment.”
Subsea 7’s chief executive officer, Jean Cahuzac, added: “This contract recognizes our successful alliance model that brings together Subsea 7’s SURF technology and extensive track record in delivery of large-scale complex EPCIC projects, with OneSubsea’s reservoir and subsea production, and processing systems technologies. Our alliance presents Murphy E&P with many opportunities to improve their field economics, and reduces complexity, cost and risk to achieve production objectives safely, on time and within challenging cost targets.”
Offshore installation activities are scheduled for 2018.
