Subsea Integration Alliance (SIA), a global partnership between OneSubsea and Subsea 7, has secured a subsea production systems contract for the deepwater Katmai field development in the US Gulf of Mexico’s Green Canyon 40.
The contract awarded by Fieldwood Energy is valued between $50m and $150m.
The project integrates OneSubsea’s subsea production systems, as well as Subsea 7’s subsea umbilicals, riser and flowline systems capability.
Under the contract, Subsea 7 will provide project management, engineering, procurement, construction and installation of 40km of pipe-in-pipe production flowline.
The firm will also offer subsea structures, tie-ins to the Tarantula Platform and pre-commissioning expertise.
OneSubsea will provide three trees, connectors, valves, topside controls, flying leads and umbilical termination assemblies.
Additionally, co-located teams from both firms will support project management and engineering in Houston, Texas.
Offshore installation works are expected to commence by next year.
Subsea 7 Gulf of Mexico vice-president Craig Broussard said: “We are excited to partner with Fieldwood on this material new development in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico, and we look forward to working with Fieldwood’s talented technical team on this project. This is the first step in what we hope will become a long-term, mutually beneficial relationship.
“This award also builds on the reputation of the SIA to offer clients quality focused project execution, with optimised production and improved cost efficiency.
“By bringing together Subsea 7 and OneSubsea complementary technology and expertise, we are able to provide our clients with greater certainty of return on investment and enhanced asset profit potential.”
SIA designs, develops, and supplies integrated subsea development solutions through the combination of subsurface expertise, subsea production systems, subsea processing systems, subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines systems, and life of field services.
