Ophir Energy has appointed WorleyParsons as the owner’s engineer for the Equatorial Guinea FLNG development.
WorleyParsons will provide engineering and project management services for the Equatorial Guinea Block R Project (The Fortuna Project). Ophir also awarded a master services agreement to provide engineering support to its global assets.
Block R is a gas development offshore Equatorial Guinea, 140 km southwest of Bioko Island, and covers an area of 2450 km2 with water depths ranging from 1400 – 1900 m.
Ophir is planning to develop the gas reserves through phased installation of a 20 well subsea production system, supplying dry gas to a locally moored FLNG facility, which will have a capacity of 3 million tpy.
The scope of the services provided by WorleyParsons, together with its specialist deepwater division INTECSEA, includes overseeing the FEED scopes and tendering and evaluation of related engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning packages.
Commenting on the award, WorleyParsons CEO, Andrew Wood, said: “We are pleased to be selected for this innovative project bringing remote gas economically to market and to be providing support to Ophir’s facilities around the world.”
