Deepwater Dalia contract

A joint venture made up of Technip-Coflexip, Saipem and Stolt Offshore, in a consortium with Samsung H.I. and Daewoo SME, has been won an engineering, procurement and fabrication contract for the FPSO’s topsides of the Dalia oilfield development, offshore Angola. The lump-sum contract was awarded by TotalFinaElf E&P Angola and is worth about USD 640 million. This project involves the integration of the 22,000-ton topsides on the hull to be supplied by Samsung H.I under a separate contract, which has been endorsed by the Consortium. The Dalia field, operated by TotalFinaElf Angola E&P, is located in block 17 off Angola, in water depths of 1200 to 1500 metres. The FPSO (Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading vessel) will be anchored in 1300 metres of water. It will produce 240,000bpd of crude. It will have 400,000bpd of total liquids handling capacity and a storage capacity of 2,000,000 barrels. It will include two processing trains to separate out gas and water and to heat the crude. This floater will be 300 metres long and 63 metres wide and will include a 120 bed-accommodation unit. First oil from Dalia is scheduled for mid 2006.
