Installation and construction firm Subsea 7 has secured a contract to provide services to Chevron in the Anchor field, in the US Gulf of Mexico.

The company will provide project management, engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of subsea umbilicals, risers, and flowlines (SURF) components, flying leads, and jumpers.

Subsea 7 US vice-president Craig Broussard said: “We are honoured to be selected by Chevron for the SURF installation scope on the Anchor project. We look forward to building on the collaborative relationship with Chevron to deliver a best-in-class project.

“The combination of the SURF scope for Subsea 7 and the ongoing subsea equipment delivery by OneSubsea, will allow the Subsea Integration Alliance to work in partnership with Chevron to unlock the value of an integrated approach to project optimisation.”

In a statement, the company said project management and engineering of the field will start immediately from its offices in Houston, Texas. Furthermore, fabrication of the flowlines and risers will take place at the company’s spoolbase in Ingleside, Texas.

The Anchor oil and gas field is a deepwater, high-pressure development at a water depth of 1,524m in the Green Canyon area. It is approximately 140 miles offshore Louisiana.

The field is jointly owned by Chevron USA (62.86%) and Total E&P USA (37.14%).

Offshore operations of the project are expected to take place in 2022 and 2023.

In December last year, French oil and gas firm Total made its final investment decision (FID) to develop the Anchor oil field.
