Burullus Gas Company has awarded Technip-Coflexip a contract for subsea facilities for the Sapphire gas field, offshore Egypt. This award follows the contract it awarded to Technip for the subsea development of the nearby Simian/Sienna fields. The additional award is valued at about USD 250 million. The project takes effect from 20 July 2003 and the work is scheduled to be completed in November 2005. The scope of work is similar to that of Simian/Sienna. It will consist mainly in long-distance subsea tiebacks between eight subsea production wells located in water depths ranging from 300m to 499m, two inter-connected manifolds and a 26â? export pipeline to be connected into the Scarab/Saffron facilities. Technip will provide design, engineering, procurement, fabrication, installation, testing and commissioning. The field is located 74km from the Nile Delta shoreline, south west of the Simian field. It is expected to produce 665 million SCFD of gas to be used as feedstock for the second train of the LNG plant at Idku, near Alexandria. Burullus Gas Company is a joint venture company between the Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company EGAS, British Gas Egypt and Petronas.
