HOUSTON -- GE Oil & Gas has received a $165-million contract to supply production equipment to Chevron’s Lianzi project, situated offshore between Angola and the Republic of Congo.
GE will provide a range of technologies to enable EPC project execution. This includes the supply of seven trees, nine SCMs, topside and subsea controls distribution equipment and vertical connection systems.
Completion of the first tree is scheduled to take place in the fourth quarter of 2013, with a cross regional team from GE Aberdeen, Nailsea and Sandvika sites collaborating on project delivery.
The $2.0 billion Lianzi development will include a subsea production system and a 27-mi electrically heated flowline, the first of its kind at this water depth. The flowline will transport oil from the field to the Benguela-Belize, Lobito-Tomboco platform.
