The Ndungu field is part of the Azule Energy Agogo Integrated West Hub project in Angola’s offshore Block 15/06.

Azule Energy operates Block 15/06 in partnership with Sonangol P&P and SSI Fifteen.

Aker Solutions executive vice-president and head of subsea business Maria Peralta said: “We are very pleased to have been awarded another important contract by Azule Energy in Angola. We look forward to continuing our strong relationship by maintaining our focus on safe and efficient operations.”

Earlier this week, Azule Energy awarded a significant contract to TechnipFMC to supply flexible pipe for the Ndungu field.

In March this year, Azule Energy awarded contracts worth nearly $7.8bn in total for the development of the Agogo Integrated West Hub Project in Block 15/06 off the Angolan coast.
