TechnipFMC has been awarded a significant integrated engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (iEPCI) contract on March 10 from BP Angola for the Platina field development, located offshore Angola in Block 18 at water depths ranging from 1,200 m to 1,500 m.
The contract covers the manufacture, delivery and installation of the subsea equipment including subsea trees, a production manifold with associated subsea control and connection systems, as well as rigid pipelines, umbilicals and flexible jumpers.
“We are very pleased to have been selected by BP for this important deepwater development offshore Angola. We are committed to BP and to supporting the Angolan oil and gas industry. This iEPCI follows iFEED work and will utilize our local assets such as our service base in Luanda and our umbilical factory in Lobito,” Arnaud Pieton, president subsea at TechnipFMC, said.
For TechnipFMC, a “significant” contract is between $75 million and $250 million.
