Azule Energy, the incorporated joint venture combining bp and ENI’s Angolan assets, has awarded a large subsea contract for the Agogo oilfield, in the country’s deepwater.
The contract is for an extension of an ongoing greenfield project in Block 15/06, which began with 20,000Barrels of Oil Per Day in 2020, produced as a tie into an existing FPSO on the block.
The second phase of the Agogo project, to monetise crude oil accumulation stored in reservoirs in 1,700 metres of water, calls for an FPSO on its own, which will deliver up to 120,000Barrels of Oil Per Day. First oil is expected in 2026.
The scope of work for the subsea contract, awarded to Baker Hughes, includes 23 standard subsea trees, 11 Aptara manifolds, SemStar5 fiber optic controls and the related system scope of supply, the oil service giant says in a statement
Baker Hughes will also provide services and aftermarket support for the Agogo integrated west hub subsea production system.
A significant portion of the equipment will be manufactured, assembled and tested in Angola, leveraging Baker Hughes’ local facilities and workforce.
“Our local manufacturing capabilities, deepwater development equipment and innovative subsea control system technology enable us to provide exceptional support to Azule Energy in their efforts to increase oil production in Angola,” said Maria Claudia Borras, executive vice president of Oilfield Services and Equipment at Baker Hughes.”
