TechnipFMC supplies umbilicals for Total’s Kaombo project

Oilfield services provider TechnipFMC has supplied the umbilicals system for Total’s Kaombo project offshore Angola.

TechnipFMC said on Wednesday that the engineering, procurement, and fabrication of the umbilicals utilized the facilities of TechnipFMC Umbilicals Ltd., TechnipFMC Umbilicals Inc., and Angoflex Ltda.

The Kaombo development is located on Block 32, approximately 140 kilometers off the coast of Angola and is operated by Total E&P Angola.

TechnipFMC Umbilicals was in charge of the project management, engineering and manufacture of over 135 kilometers of steel tube umbilicals.

The company added that the load-out of the umbilicals for offshore installation started in April 2017 at Angoflex in Lobito, Angola, and that the final umbilical was loaded out in January 2018.

Gavin Bainbridge, project manager, said: “The success of the Kaombo project has been a real team effort across the globe, and demonstrated the level of commitment and dedication the teams across the three sites have, making it possible to deliver such large-scale global projects.”

In recent news related to the project, ALP Maritime Services was selected by Interoil and Saipem to provide a spread of five vessels to tow the FPSO for the Kaombo project from South East Asia to West Africa.
