Subsea Integration Alliance, a non-incorporated strategic alliance between Subsea7 and OneSubsea, has received a contract to support BP’s Cypre project offshore from Trinidad and Tobago.

Located 78km from the south-east coast of Trinidad in the East Mayaro block, the Cypre gas field is expected to deliver an average gas production rate of 250 to 300 million standard cubic feet a day.

It will include seven wells and subsea trees tied back by two new 14km flexible flowlines into the Juniper platform, which is operated by BP‘s subsidiary BP Trinidad and Tobago (BPTT).

BPTT plans to start production from the field in 2025.

Under the latest contract, Subsea 7 will be responsible for the concept and design, engineering, procurement, construction and installation of a two-phase liquid natural gas tieback to the Juniper platform.

This will be facilitated through dual flexible flowlines and a manifold gathering system, along with topside upgrades.

Subsea7 US vice-president Craig Broussard said: “We have been working closely with BP and our suppliers at the earliest possible stage to help develop and deliver an integrated SPS and SURF solution that optimises cost and efficiency, to accelerate first gas.”

Subsea Integration Alliance CEO Olivier Blaringhem said: “BP’s Cypre project is a prime example of our ability to harness the key strengths of Subsea Integration Alliance; Subsea7 with its expertise in executing complex EPCI projects, and OneSubsea’s fast-track distribution of subsea production systems.

“Combined, we are delivering a refined solution which enables early first gas.” 

Subsea7 plans to start design, engineering, and project management immediately at its offices in the US. Offshore installation work is scheduled to start in 2024.

The company said it expects its share of revenue related to the Subsea Integration Alliance contract to be between $150m and $300m.

Earlier this month, BP announced that it had begun shipping liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the FLNG project in Mozambique.
