Van Ord wins Nile Delta contracts
Contractor Subsea 7 has awarded Van Oord two contracts involving construction of a landfall and the execution of subsea rock installation works in Egypt.
The projects are part of the West Nile Delta project, which comprises the development of a series of gas fields, located 65km off the northern coast of Egypt. Final client is oil and gas company BP.
The scope of work of the landfall contract consists of the installation of a cofferdam as well as trenching and pipe-pull activities and will be executed in 2017. The landfall location is at the Burrulus terminal near Idku, 50km from Alexandria. Van Oord will deploy a trailing suction hopper dredger, backhoe dredger and 600t winch. Flexible fallpipe vessel Stornes will be deployed this year to carry out rock installation activities to prevent upheaval buckling.
Production from the West Nile Delta is expected to be around 1.2 billion cubic feet a day (bcf/d), equivalent to about 30% of Egypt’s current gas production. All the produced gas will be fed into the country’s national gas grid.
