Subsea 7 said it was awarded a contract by Mobil Producing Nigeria Unlimited (MPN) for a pipeline project in shallow water, offshore Nigeria.
The value of the contract is between US$150 million to $300 million, it said in a statement.
The contract scope for the Production Uplift Pipeline Projects (PUPP) includes engineering, construction, transportation, installation and pre-commissioning of 20 kilometres pipeline between the Idoho Platform and the terminal onshore and of 2 kilometres pipeline between the Edop and Idoho Platforms, as well as associated topside modifications and tie-ins at both ends, the company said.
Engineering and procurement will start immediately at NigerStar 7’s offices in Lagos, while offshore operations will take place from third quarter 2018 to first quarter 2019, using the Subsea 7 vessel, Seven Antares.
“Subsea 7 has a long track record of successful operations in Nigeria, enabled by our local joint venture, NigerStar 7,” Gilles Lafaye, Subsea 7's regional vice president for Africa said. “This award reflects our strong reputation for successful Conventional project execution in the region and offers us a further opportunity to support the continued development of the country’s oil and gas industry.”
