Project Dimension

The project is a green field oil development located in the Gulf of Guinea, approximately 130 km offshore in water depths ranging from 1160 m to 1410 m. The field lies predominantly within OML 118 (formerly OPL 212), about 12 km southwest of the Bonga Main field, and straddles Chevron operated OML 132 and OML 140 acreages (Figure 1.1). The project objective is to develop 3.2 billion barrels STOIIP from 7 major deepwater turbidite reservoirs.

The project is a 150 kbopd nominal capacity spread-moored FPSO with 260 kbwpd water injection capacity, 180 MMscfd gas processing, 190kbopd gross liquid capacity and a minimum storage volume of 1.8 MMbbls of oil. The project targets the recovery of 594 MMstb in the Phase-1 development from 23 wells (12 production and 11 water injection) and an additional UR of 202 MMstb from 20 wells in the Phase-2 development. Additional estimated recovery from Phase 3 is 193 MMstb.

Produced gas (Ph1 440 bcf / Ph2 250 bcf) from the FPSO will be evacuated to the EA Riser Platform A (EA-RPA) via a dedicated 12” x 100 km gas export pipeline (GEP) and then to the existing Offshore Gas Gathering System (OGGS) pipeline. Processed oil will be offloaded to export tankers via a Catenary Anchor Leg Mooring (CALM) buoy connected to the FPSO via 3 nos x 16” flexible risers as primary offloading system and tandem offloading as backup secondary offloading system. The FPSO will have a nominal 100 persons living quarters (expandable to 150) and a helicopter deck.

The Phase-1 subsea development comprises 12 subsea production trees and 11 water injection trees clustered around 3nos x 6-slot production and 3nos x 4-slot water injection manifolds. The manifolds are connected to the FPSO by 10” x circa 26 km of subsea production flowlines and steel catenary risers (SCRs) in two flow loops and one 14” x circa 12 km water injection flowline and SCR. Services and control of the subsea and wells facilities is provided by circa 32 km of static and dynamic umbilicals and circa 4 km of composite gas-lift umbilicals

The project Phase-2 development will be undertaken about 3-7 years following First Oil Date (FOD). This phase comprises 10 production and 10 water injection trees, a new 4-slot production manifold, 2nos x 4-slot water injection manifolds and 2nos x multi-hub water injection sleds. The existing water injection flowline will be extended by circa 5 km along with a new 12” x circa 8 km water injection flowline with new associated service umbilicals

The project targets achievement of FID and FOD in 2019 and 2023 respectively.

Special Challenges

1. Flagship Mega-project with high visibility and significant technical complexity.

2. Managing the establishment of a project leadership team in Nigeria as the project shifts from Concept Select, through FEED and tendering, into execution. All tender preparation and evaluation will be done in Nigeria and this will pose some logistical challenges.

3. Project will be executed in multiple locations globally and simultaneously by different EPC contractors. Therefore, project control processes will need to be embedded within each contract team. Coordinating and aligning practices and schedules to meet project requirements is one challenge. Achieving a high standard of HSE performance and Goal Zero particularly among new inexperienced local contractors will be another.

4. Support maximization of design and execution synergies between projects as mandated by senior management.

5. Working with and influencing a diverse multi-cultural team

Additional Background and Comments

The project will be executed in six (6) EPC contract packages. The Invitation to Tender (ITTs) for the six EPC contract packages has been issued following the completion of negotiation of the project commercial terms between the Government and CoVs.

The mobilisation of the selected candidate will be subject to:

1. Quota approval of the position for expatriates

2. STR Visa approval process for expatriates
