Azule Energy, a joint venture between Eni and BP, has awarded Saipem a contract to develop the Ndungu field, part of the Agogo Integrated West Hub Project, offshore Angola.

Saipem’s scope of work entails the engineering, fabrication, transportation, and installation of approximately 60 km of rigid pipelines and subsea facilities at a depth of around 1,100 meters, as well as the transportation and installation of flexible flowlines, jumpers, and 17 km of umbilicals.

Fabrication activities under the $850 million contract will be executed at Saipem’s Ambriz yard in Angola.

For the offshore installation campaign, Saipem expects to deploy its FDS vessel for the transportation and laying activities of the rigid pipelines.

The Agogo Integrated West Hub Development Project is located in the West Hub of Block 15/06 offshore Angola.

Yinson Production is in charge of the delivery of the Agogo FPSO for the project.

The Agogo FPSO is designed to produce 120,000 barrels of oil per day and features advanced carbon emission reduction technologies, including the first-ever onboard carbon capture system.
