Global underwater contractor, Subsea 7 today announced a major contract award for development of the Chinguetti field which is the first oil and gas development offshore Mauritania, West Africa. The EPIC (Engineering, Procurement, Installation and Commissioning) contract for Woodside Mauritania Pty Ltd is valued in the region of $140 million.

Subsea 7’s work will include the transport and installation of three subsea manifolds including installation of: two 10” dia. 6.5 km long flexible production flowlines and risers; one 10” dia 6.8 km long flexible water injection flowline and riser; one 6” dia. 6.5 km long flexible gas lift flowline and riser and one 8” 18.3 km long gas injection flowline and riser. The Chinguetti field is located in water depths between 350 and 850 metres.
