Work continues on the Kaombo oil development offshore Angola. Under a subcontract let by Technip SA to Fugro NV, the Dutch engineering firm will provide offshore deepwater survey and positioning services to a total of seven installation vessels and construction support vessels.
Kaombo, operated by Total E&P Angola, lies on Block 32 in 1,400-2,000 m of water about 260 km offshore Luanda (OGJ Online, Apr. 16, 2014). It includes six fields that will be tied back to two converted floating production, storage, and offloading vessels.
The contract starts in this year’s second half and is slated to continue until early 2018.
