Italian engineering firm Saipem, has been awarded a new contract for offshore activities in Côte d’Ivoire.

The company reported two contracts in Côte d’Ivoire and Italy for an overall amount of 850Million Euro.

The contract in Côte d’Ivoire is for installation of Subsea Umbilicals, Risers and Flowlines (SURF)  for the development of the Baleine Phase 2 project, located in 1,200metre water depth offshore the West African country.

The SURF contract is the fourth in a string of contracts that the company would be handed by ENI, the Italian major and operator of the field development. “Saipem contributed to the drilling activities of Baleine Phase 1 by deploying the Saipem 10000 and Saipem 12000 vessels, followed up by the execution of two contracts for Baleine Phase 1 in fast-track mode”, the contractor testifies in a statement.

The scope of work encompasses the Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation (EPCI) of approximately 20 km of rigid lines, 10 km of flexible risers and jumpers and 15 kilometres of umbilicals connected to a dedicated floating unit. The installation works will be carried out by Saipem’s best-in-class offshore construction vessels and will take place in 2024.

“With this new award”, Saipem says it “brings a further strategic contribution to the history of the Baleine field and strengthens its presence in Côte d’Ivoire”.
