Subsea 7 S.A. announced the award  of a contract with a value of approximately USD 500 million by BP, and partner DEA, for the development of the Taurus and Libra subsea fields offshore Alexandria, Egypt. The contract is the first phase of Egypt's West Nile Delta project where field  development will be at depths of approximately 800  metres.

The contract scope includes the engineering,  procurement, installation and pre-commissioning of subsea infrastructure required to develop the hydrocarbon resources from nine wells including 75  kilometres of umbilicals and 100 kilometres of pipeline.

Engineering and project management work will  commence immediately and will be undertaken at  Subsea 7's Global Projects Centre in London.  Fabrication of the subsea structures and spools will be carried out at the Petrojet Maadia yard near Alexandria. Offshore installation is scheduled  to commence in the second half of 2016 using the  Subsea 7 pipelay vessel, Seven Borealis, and heavy construction vessel, Seven Arctic.

Øeyvind Mikaelsen, Executive Vice President  Southern Hemisphere and Global Projects said: "This  large contract awarded by BP for the first phase of  the West Nile Delta field development recognises  the value we bring to our clients through early engagement with them to engineer, design and deliver cost-effective solutions for complex field developments. We look forward to expanding our presence in Egypt and building on our long, successful and collaborative relationship with BP."
