Subsea 7 has been awarded a large contract by BP as part of the deepwater Mad Dog 2 development, located approximately 190 miles south of New Orleans.

The Oslo-listed SURF specialist defines a large contract as being between USD 300 million and USD 500 million.

The contract scope covers engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of the subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines (SURF) and associated subsea architecture.

Subsea 7 collaborated with OneSubsea, a Schlumberger company, and its Subsea Integration Alliance partner to identify additional areas of cost improvement to provide greater cost certainty and reduced risk. This has enabled the original cost of the Mad Dog 2 development to be substantially reduced, Subsea 7 noted.

In addition, the contract represents the first substantial project in the US to use Subsea 7’s Swagelining polymer lining technology.

Project management and engineering will take place in Houston, Texas with support from Subsea 7’s Global Project Centre in London, UK. Offshore installation activities are scheduled for 2019
and 2020.

Craig Broussard, Subsea 7 vice president for the Gulf of Mexico, said: “The Mad Dog 2 project is a significant award for Subsea 7. It combines Subsea 7’s capability with our Subsea Integration Alliance value offering to reduce risk and provide lower cost solutions for BP. This project serves as a step-change of how we work in the region and in Subsea 7’s ability to deliver superior value to the industry.”

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
