TechnipFMC has reached a new milestone associated with Total’s Egina project with the delivery of the 2oth subsea tree for the ultra-deep field off the coast of Nigeria.
Earlier this year, the first TechnipFMC subsea trees for Egina field were prepared in Dunfermline, Scotland, for completion at the company’s base in Onne, Nigeria. The subsea services support center in Onne was officially launched in July 2016 with aim to support the Egina project.
Contract for Egina was announced in June 2013 when FMC Technologies received an order from Total for subsea equipment for the field. The award had an estimated value of $1.2 billion. Techinp is also part of Egina project with contracts to supply flexible pipes and umbilicals.
Egina is the third deep offshore development of Total in Nigeria. The field is situated at a water depth of up to 1.750 meters, some 20 kilometers of Akpo field, located in the same OML 130 license.
Development plan includes 44 wells connected to a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel with a storage capacity of 2.3 million barrels. First oil is expected in 2018, with output reaching 200,000 barrels of oil per day.
