BP West Nile Delta Subsea Manifolds

Project Overview

The West Nile Delta (WND) Gas Development will develop a series of gas condensate fields, located within the North Alexandria concession, offshore the Arab Republic of Egypt. The development will utilise subsea wells and associated gathering systems flowing to an onshore reception and processing terminal for treatment.

The fields are located in water depths ranging from 300 to 750m and up to 80km offshore. The wells will be tied back to subsea manifolds before flowing to shore through a three field dedicated multiphase gathering systems tied into two trunk lines which transport the production to the onshore gas terminal.

Scope of Services

BP engaged CONSUB to provide manifold technical and delivery package management services. CONSUB personnel acted within an integrated team with the BP Global Subsea Hardware group overseeing the BP SPS contractor Cameron.

The manifolds comprised 4No.subsea manifolds with two of the four manifolds containing a separately retrievable HIPPS module with multiple 10-inch 10K HIPPS gate valves. All of the manifolds were fabricated at Maedia, Alexandria in Egypt.
