HOUSTON -- Cabinda Gulf Oil Company (CABGOC) has contracted Amec to perform front-end engineering design (FEED) for its Mafumeira Sul project, offshore Cabinda Province, Angola.

The contract (value not disclosed), should run through mid-2011.

Mafumeira Sul will feature a central production complex comprising three platforms, linked by two bridges, and a flare tower. Oil and liquefied petroleum gas will be exported to the Malongo Oil Terminal and the Sanha floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, respectively. 

The Mafumeira field is in Block 0, in water depths ranging from 150-160 ft (45.7-48.7 ft). The new infrastructure will provide for future development of additional fields in the Southern Malongo area. 

“We are pleased to continue our seven-year collaboration with Chevron and CABGOC,” said Terrance Ivers, president of Amec's Houston-based oil and gas business, which will manage the program executed in both Luanda and Houston via its Paragon Angola subsidiary. “Our previous and existing experience working on the Area A Gas Management and Sanha Condensate projects proved valuable in securing the pre-FEED and FEED work for this project.”
