HOUSTON –Cabinda Gulf Oil Co. Ltd. has installed the Takula Gas Processing Platform in block 0 offshore Angola as part of its long-term target to reduce natural gas flaring.
In 186 ft (57 m) of water TGPP is part of the Area A Gas Management Program. AMEC Paragon provided front-end engineering design to the program and also detailed engineering and procurement assistance to Samsung Heavy Industries for the platform.
"TGPP represents a major accomplishment for the Area A project as it will provide additional compression and gas sweetening in block 0," says Bob King, Chevron project manager. "AMEC Paragon's comprehensive detailed design work streamlined the material procurement and fabrication phases of the project and contributed to safe and successful platform installation. We look forward to commissioning and start-up during the third quarter of 2008."
Bridge-linked to an existing platform, TGPP is a single-train facility designed as a 5,000-metric ton (5,512-ton), single-lift modular deck with facilities to process approximately 100 MMcf/d of sour gas for injection and delivery to the new onshore Cabinda Gas Plant.
