Deepwater Developments

Diverless Connection Systems Package Management

Project Overview

The BP Angola Programme focused on three Assets within the Angolan Geographical region namely Block 31 North East, Block 18 Western Area and Block 31 South East.

The Block 31 North East development consists of four oil fields located in water depths between 1800m to 2,200. Clusters of production wells were tied back via manifolds to the FPSO via individual flow lines. The wells included production, water injection, gas injection and gas export.

Block B Western Area consists of two oil fields which are located in depths ranging from 1,450m and 1,650m. Production facilities are presently envisaged to be similar to the Block 31 North East development due to an FPSO located in the centre Block 31 South East development consists of six oilfield discoveries which are found in water depths ranging from 1,600 to 2000m in a geographically dispersed region. These discoveries are expected to form the mid FPSO and the Block 31 South East developments with tiebacks ranging between 5 and 20 km.

Scope of Services

BP contracted CONSUB to be responsible for the Package Management of the diverless connectors and the connector tooling.

CONSUB was responsible for the delivery management of connectors, horizontal and vertical, and connector tooling and related equipment and for the management of all technical support of this tooling in Angola and offshore during spool deployment.

The project reached first gas in 2014.
