Oil and gas services provider TechnipFMC has installed six manifold modules for Total’s Egina project development offshore Nigeria.
The six manifold modules built by TechnipFMC have been installed in the field located offshore Nigeria within OML 130. They have been manufactured at the Aveon yard in Port Harcourt, Nigeria, TechnipFMC said on Tuesday.
TechnipFMC provides project management, engineering, procurement, and construction for Egina’s entire Subsea Production System (SPS) scope.
Construction began in December 2013, when the first steel cutting took place. The foundations of the manifold modules were then delivered in October 2016 and have been installed.
“This milestone is the result of strong collaboration between Total, TechnipFMC and Aveon and extraordinary dedication from each team member involved in the Manifolds scope. It secures a major phase of the project, executed in a safe and secure manner,” commented Benoit Le Bihan, Egina Project Director at TechnipFMC.
Designed for water-depths of up to 1700 meters, Egina is one of the deepest offshore projects ever executed by Total.
The field development, some 150 kilometers off the coast of Nigeria, will be consisted of an FPSO, an oil offloading terminal, and subsea production systems that will include 52 kilometers of oil and water injection flowlines, 12 flexible jumpers, 20 kilometers of gas export pipelines, 80 kilometers of umbilicals, and subsea manifolds. The FPSO will have a storage capacity of 2.3 million barrels of oil.
With a design life of 25 years, the field is expected to produce up to 200,000 barrels of oil per day, thus contributing up to 10% of Nigeria’s oil output. The field is operated by Total Upstream Nigeria (24%) in partnership with NNPC, CNOOC, SAPETRO and Petrobras.
