TechnipFMC posted a picture on social media channels last Friday of the first subsea trees being prepared for Total’s Egina field offshore Nigeria.
The subsea trees, loaded in the company’s Dunfermline facility in Scotland, were ready on Friday for TechnipFMC’s Onne base in Nigeria for completion, after which they will head to the Egina field, some 150 kilometers off the coast of Nigeria, in water depths of up to 1,750 meters.
Infrastructure on the field will include 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.
At its peak, production at Egina is expected to reach 200,000 barrels per day.
The FPSO, operated by Total, will begin production in 2018. It is 330 meters in length, 61 meters across and 34 meters high, with a storage capacity of 2.3 million barrels of oil.
It is worth noting that the last subsea tree delivered by FMC Technologies under that name was in mid-January after which the company completed its merger with the French oilfield service provider Technip to form TechnipFMC.
