PARIS -- Technip subsidiaries Angoflex (owned jointly with Sonangol) and DUCO have won contracts to supply umbilicals for Total’s CLOV development offshore Angola.
The contracts were awarded by Acergy Angola and Acergy West Africa. CLOV takes in four fields in block 17 in water depths of up to 1,410 m (4,626 ft).
The scope covers the supply of 76 km (47 mi) of dynamic and static production and water injection umbilicals, which will be manufactured at the Angoflex facility in Lobito, Angola. The umbilicals, due to be completed in 2013, will be the first delivered following the expansion of the plant’s capacity.
Angoflex is installing two manufacturing carousels, a load-out path, and is upgrading an existing helical lay-up machine. These measures, Technip says, will allow Angoflex to fabricate 100% of the CLOV umbilical work scope at Lobito.
Previously the plant supplied umbilicals for the Dalia and Pazflor projects in block 17.
