BP awards SLB, Subsea 7 alliance contract for Cypre gas project
Subsea Integration Alliance, a non-incorporated tie-up between Subsea 7 and SLB's OneSubsea, has been awarded a contract by BP for its Cypre gas project offshore Trinidad and Tobago. The contract scope covers the engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) of the subsea production systems and subsea pipelines.
“By leveraging early engagement, digital solutions and field-proven, standard equipment, we were able to quickly define the development concept for BP’s Cypre project and place early orders for key components, derisking the project timeline,” Don Sweet, director of SLB's Subsea Production Systems business, said.
The award represents Subsea Integration Alliance’s first fully integrated EPCI single contract with BP and the alliance’s first development in the Caribbean nation.
The Subsea Integration Alliance team delivered the initial front-end engineering and design phase for the project and will now transition into the full EPCI phase. Offshore installation is scheduled to commence in 2024.
OneSubsea, the subsea technologies, production, and processing systems business of SLB, will deliver the subsea production systems, which will include seven horizontal subsea tree systems, subsea controls and connection systems, distribution and control systems and aftermarket services. Subsea7 will deliver the subsea pipelines for the project.
“BP’s Cypre project is a prime example of our ability to harness the key strengths of Subsea Integration Alliance: Subsea7 with its expertise in executing complex EPCI projects and OneSubsea’s fast-track delivery of subsea production systems,” Olivier Blaringhem, Subsea Integration Alliance CEO, said. “Combined, we are delivering a refined solution that enables early first gas.”
