(Image source: Subsea 7)Chevron Overseas Congo has awarded Subsea 7 an EPIC contract for the development of the Lianzi field offshore Congo and Angola, which has been valued at approximately US$600mn

The technical specifications of the project include a 12” wet insulated production flow-line with direct electrical heating, which, if achieved, would set a record for the deepest electrically heated pipe, said Subsea 7.

Olivier Carre, senior vice-president of Subsea 7's Africa and Gulf of Mexico territory, commented, “We are very pleased to be awarded this EPIC contract including the design and procurement of the subsea facilities which fits perfectly with Subsea 7's capacity to deliver large-scale projects.”

The project will maximise the use of local personnel and resources in Congo and Angola, the company added.

A significant part of the design and fabrication will be executed in Luanda, with additional fabrication work carried out in Lobito by the company’s Angolan joint venture.

All flow-lines will be spooled to the Seven Oceans ship at Subsea 7's Luanda base, while Angolan and Congolese personnel will join the offshore construction teams during the offshore phase, scheduled for the second half of 2014.

“We look forward to working in close co-operation with Chevron to deliver the Lianzi project safely and to the highest standards,” Carre added.

Chevron was among the companies recently allocated oil blocks in close proximity to the sought-after SL-07A-10 offshore Sierra Leone, the contract for which has just been awarded to Elenilto.
