Saipem has been awarded two new, major contracts for offshore activities in Cote d’Ivoire and Italy
The first contract has been awarded to Saipem by Eni Côte d’Ivoire and its partner Petroci. It is a subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines (SURF) contract for the development of the Baleine Phase 2 project, which takes its name from the oil and gas field, located offshore Côte d’Ivoire at a 1,200m water depth.
The scope of work encompasses the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of approximately 20 km of rigid lines, 10 km of flexible risers and jumpers and 15 km of umbilicals connected to a dedicated floating unit. The installation works will be carried out by Saipem’s best-in-class offshore construction vessels and will take place in 2024.
With this new award, Saipem brings a further strategic contribution to the history of the Baleine field and strengthens its presence in Côte d’Ivoire. Saipem contributed to the drilling activities of Baleine Phase 1 by deploying the Saipem 10000 and Saipem 12000 vessels, followed up by the execution of two contracts for Baleine Phase 1 in fast-track mode.
