Heerema and Technip Win Kaombo Contract

The consortium, comprising Heerema Marine Contractors (Heerema) and Technip, was awarded a major lump-sum contract by Total E&P Angola for the engineering, procurement, construction, installation (EPCI) and pre-commissioning for the SURF (subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines) part of the Kaombo project.

The Kaombo project is located in Block 32 offshore Angola in water depths up to 2,000 meters. The contract is valued at approximately $3.5 billion.

This project falls within the Heerema Technip strategic alliance formed 15 months ago that offers comprehensive subsea solutions through a unique combination of complementary assets, technologies and capabilities. It provides the industry with a strong and experienced contractor to address the ultra-deepwater market.

The engineering work will start immediately in the Paris (France), Leiden (the Netherlands) and Luanda (Angola) centers with most of the offshore installation activities being scheduled for 2016 and 2017.

Heerema intends to mobilize its Deep Water Construction vessel, the Balder to install all STTRs and the pipe-in-pipe production pipelines. Technip’s vessel, the Deep Blue, will install all the remaining pipelines.

Other vessels from Technip’s fleet will install the flexibles and umbilicals and provide construction work support.

The project is scheduled for completion in the first half of 2018.
