Bourbon, a marine services provider for the offshore oil & gas industry, has been awarded a pipelay contract by Total for the subsea development of the Hylia project, offshore Gabon. 

Bourbon said on Tuesday that this is its first pipelay contract awarded by Total Gabon for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of 25 km of 6” rigid pipeline as part of the Hylia Water Injection Project using Zap-Lok technology.

For the execution of this contract, Bourbon is subcontracting key suppliers, mainly Cortez Subsea, for pipelay equipment and Wood Group for the pipeline design and pipelay engineering.

According to the company, operations are scheduled to start in the second quarter of 2017 offshore Gabon with an MPSV from the Bourbon Evolution 800 series. ROV services and a PSV, all provided by Bourbon, will also support survey and air diving operations for spool and riser installation.

Patrick Belenfant, Bourbon’s Senior VP Subsea Services, commented: “We are very proud of the trust that Total has placed in us for this first pipelay EPCI contract. Such a comprehensive project allows Bourbon and its Gabonese partners to demonstrate our capacity to bring the best integrated services and cost-effective solutions to our clients.”
