The St. Malo field is about 250 mi (402 km) south of New Orleans.
Subsea 7’s scope of work includes project management, engineering, procurement, construction, and installation of the multi-phase pump system, a 14-mi (23-km) water injection flowline system, inclusive of a Swagelining polymer lined flowline, and the water injection control system.
Project management and engineering will start immediately at the company’s offices in Houston. Fabrication of the water injection flowline and riser will take place at its spoolbase in Ingleside, Texas, with offshore operations occurring in 2021.
Craig Broussard, vice president for Subsea 7 US, said, the contact “combines the utilization of our newest pipelay vessel, the Seven Vega, along with Subsea 7’s proven project execution capabilities and Swagelining’s polymer lining technology.
“In addition, the combination of the SURF scope for Subsea 7 and ongoing subsea equipment delivery by OneSubsea, will allow the Subsea Integration Alliance to work in collaboration with Chevron to unlock the value of an integrated approach to project optimization.”
