Xodus Bags Two ESIA Contracts Off Senegal

Xodus Group has been awarded two environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA) contracts for projects in the Rufisque Offshore, Sangomar Offshore and Sangomar Deep Offshore (RSSD) blocks in Senegal, West Africa.

Xodus’ environmental team will undertake the study for drilling activities in the Sangomar and Rufisque blocks for Capricorn Senegal Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cairn Energy, operator of the RSSD blocks.

Xodus will also perform an ESIA for the Phase 1 development, comprising an FPSO, over the SNE deepwater oil field located in the Sangomar Deep Offshore block for Woodside Energy (Senegal), as development lead for the SNE Phase 1 development.

In addition to the ESIAs, the scope also includes safety studies that Xodus’ Technical Safety and Risk (TSR) division will work with the environmental team to deliver. Xodus will work with its in-country partner, Earth Systems, to assist Capricorn and Woodside to ensure compliance with Senegalese Environmental Law.

Capricorn has a 40% working interest in the joint venture, alongside partners Woodside (35%), FAR (15%), and Petrosen (Senegalese National Oil Company) (10%).

Wim van der Zande, CEO of Xodus Group, said: “These awards build on our experience and strong working relationship with Cairn Energy, on several phases of field architecture development planning. This is a major project for the country and we are proud to be part of this as it moves towards a new stage of development.”
