Tullow Ghana has awarded Subsea 7 an engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract on its offshore Ghana Jubilee field.

The contract is awarded under a consortium comprising Subsea 7 Volta Contractors and NOV Oil & Gas Services Ghana.

“This award reflects our early engagement in design and engineering and the consortium’s experience in comparable projects within the region. This project builds upon our presence in the Ghanaian market and our long-term relationship with Tullow,” Gilles Lafaye, Subsea 7’s Vice President Africa Region said in a statement on Wednesday.

The scope of work includes EPCI activities including two offloading lines for the BTL and the additional hang-off platform and skid for the floating production storage and offloading unit.

Subsea 7 will also install the buoy turret loading system with associated suction piles.

A significant part of the fabrication will be completed locally, in Ghana, and the offshore installation will take place in 2020.
