GE Oil & Gas has secured a $165m contract to supply production equipment for Chevron‘s Lianzi project, situated offshore between Angola and the Republic of Congo.
As part of the deal, the company will provide a range of technologies to enable engineering, procurement and construction project execution.
It includes the supply of seven trees, nine subsea control modules (SCMs), topside and subsea control distribution equipment and vertical connection systems.
The project delivery will be conducted by a cross-regional team from GE’s Aberdeen, Nailsea and Sandvika (Norway) sites and the completion of the first tree is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2013.
GE Oil & Gas Subsea Systems vice president, Rod Christie, said West Africa is one of the world’s key hydrocarbon basins and the company is excited to be working with Chevron Overseas Congo.
"It represents our product competitiveness in the global marketplace, ongoing commitment to the region and continued demand for our state-of-the-art technology solutions," Christie added.
The $2bn Lianzi development project includes a subsea production system and a 43km electrically heated flow line, the first of its kind at this water depth.
The flow line will transport oil from the field to the Benguela-Belize, Lobito-Tomboco platform, the company said.
