Subsea 7 has announced the award of a sizeable contract by Fieldwood Energy to Subsea Integration Alliance, a global partnership between Subsea 7 and OneSubsea, a Schlumberger company. The award is for the deepwater Katmai field development in the US Gulf of Mexico’s Green Canyon 40.

This supplier-led integrated subsea development solution combines OneSubsea’s subsea production systems (SPS) and Subsea 7’s subsea umbilicals, riser and flowline systems (SURF) expertise.

The Subsea 7 scope includes project management, engineering, procurement, construction and installation of 40 km of pipe-in-pipe production flowline (12-inch outer pipe and 8-inch inner pipe), together with subsea structures, tie-ins to the Tarantula Platform and pre-commissioning expertise.  The OneSubsea scope includes provision of three trees (with options for two additional trees), connectors, valves, topside controls, flying leads and umbilical termination assemblies.

Co-located teams from both organisations will support project management and engineering in Houston, Texas. Offshore installation activities are scheduled for 2019.

Craig Broussard, Subsea 7 Vice President for the Gulf of Mexico, says, “We are excited to partner with Fieldwood on this material new development in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico, and we look forward to working with Fieldwood’s talented technical team on this project. This is the first step in what we hope will become a long-term, mutually beneficial relationship.W

“This award also builds on the reputation of the Subsea Integration Alliance to offer clients quality focused project execution, with optimised production and improved cost efficiency.  By bringing together Subsea 7 and OneSubsea complementary technology and expertise, we are able to provide our clients with greater certainty of return on investment and enhanced asset profit potential,” Broussard adds.
