Saipem has been awarded three new EPC contracts (one onshore and two offshore) for the Quiluma & Maboqueiro fields development project off the northwest coast of Angola
The contract was awarded by the New Gas Consortium composed by two wholly owned subsidiaries of Azule Energy (Eni Angola Exploration B.V. and BP Exploration (Angola) Limited), Sonangol P&P, Chevron and TotalEnergies.
With an overall value of around US$900mn, the contract includes hook-up and commissioning assistance of the Quiluma platform and of the relevant onshore natural gas processing plant.
“This confirms customers' trust in Saipem for the execution of complex projects, both in terms of technology and logistics, carried out in line with local content and with the highest environmental sustainability standards,” commented Saipem in a statement.
The participation in the development initiatives in the “Lower Congo Basin”, that will provide the Angola LNG plant with additional gas volumes for both international and domestic market, consolidates Saipem's strategic positioning in West Africa and in Angola, where the company has been working for more than 40 years.
