This is the second phase of the West Nile Delta project, where the field development will be at depths of up to approximately 800 metres.

The contract scope includes engineering, procurement, installation and pre-commissioning of the subsea infrastructure from twelve wells, with 80 kilometres of umbilicals and 220 kilometres of pipelines. It also includes the installation of the export lines from the subsea location to the Idku terminal.

Engineering and project management work will commence immediately and will be undertaken at Subsea 7’s Global Projects Centre in London. Offshore installation is scheduled to commence in two stages.

The first stage, commencing in 2017, will comprise the landfall and shallow water pipelay, and the second stage, commencing in 2018, will involve the installation of deepwater pipelines and execution of the SURF scope.

Subsea 7 vessels Seven Borealis and Seven Antares will be used for the pipelay, with the heavy construction vessel, Normand Oceanic, being used for the other construction activities.
