HOUSTON — McDermott International has been awarded a contract by TotalEnergies EP Angola Block 17/06 for engineering, procurement, supply, construction, installation, pre-commissioning and assistance to commissioning and startup (EPSCI) on its Begonia Project offshore Angola.

The contract is worth between US$250 million and $500 million.

The Begonia Field is in water depth between 400 m to 750 m.

The Begonia Project will collect hydrocarbons from a reservoir via a subsea-to-subsea tieback to an existing FPSO unit. McDermott will provide all EPSCI services for subsea umbilicals, water injection and production flowlines. There are three production wells in total, which are gathered through a multiphase production flowline, about 12 miles (20 km) in length. The two water injection wells are connected back to an existing riser.

McDermott will utilize its diversified fleet of specialty marine construction vessels: The North Ocean 102 will install the umbilicals, and the Amazon will install the rigid pipelines using its world-class J-lay pipeline system and advanced technology.

Mahesh Swaminathan, McDermott’s senior vice president of Subsea and Deepwater, said, “The Begonia Project represents our first subsea project in Angola and supports our strategic focus to grow our footprint in Africa.”

McDermott plans to maximize the use of local suppliers and subcontractors throughout the project and provide training to develop a local workforce.

Project management and engineering will be executed from McDermott’s teams in London and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The fabrication will be executed locally in Angola, West Africa.
