Malaysia’s Barakah Offshore Petroleum Berhad (Barakah) said its unit was awarded a contract for vessels and services for the abandonment and decommissioning of the Chinguetti and Banda fields off Mauritania, West Africa.
Barakah said its subsidiary PBJV Group will provide a well intervention vessel, a platform supply vessel and associated services for Samling Resources. The value of contract based on its work scope is estimated at US$14.3 million, the company said in a statement.
The Chinguetti field is located in Deep Water, approximately 80 kilometres west of the coastline and approximately 90 kilometre from the Mauritanian capital, Nouakchott, Mauritania.
The project involves temporary plugging of 15 wells, said Barakah, and work is scheduled to begin this month.
“The contract is for the provision of Well Intervention Vessel (WIV), platform supply vessel, and all necessary parts, spares, repairs, refurbishments and/or modifications to the WIV and all coordination, technical support and supervisory works in relation thereto,” Barakah said.
