Subsea 7 Scoops BP Contract for Manuel Project in GoM

Subsea 7 has won a SURF (subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines) contract by BP for the Manuel project in the US Gulf of Mexico.

Project execution will be delivered by Subsea Integration Alliance (SIA), which is a partnership between Subsea 7 and OneSubsea Schlumberger.

The Manuel project comprises a two well development tie-back to the Na Kika production facility, working at water depths of up to 1,900 meters.

The project’s SURF workscope includes engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of an electrically heat traced flowline (EHTF) and a steel catenary riser and all associated subsea structures as well as front-end engineering and design (FEED).

Offshore operations are due to begin in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Early engagement between SIA and BP has enabled the project to be the first in the US to use Subsea 7’s EHTF technology.

Craig Broussard, Subsea 7 vice president for the Gulf of Mexico, said: “The award of the Manuel project is a clear demonstration of the power of collaboration between all stakeholders. Together with our SIA partner, OneSubsea, and the BP team, we have produced an optimised solution that will see the deployment of EHTF technology. This has enabled us to reduce the total cost of the project, while in parallel accelerating the first oil target date to just 24 months from discovery. SIA has been able to deliver this accelerated schedule by removing critical path challenges through early engagement, on both SPS and SURF scopes of work. This has ultimately allowed us to achieve a solution that creates sustainable value for all parties despite a challenging cost environment.”

The contract is said to be between USD 50 million and USD 150 million.
