Total E & P Angola has awarded the Marine Warranty Services (MWS) contract for their flagship Kaombo project. Angola is a country of strategic importance for Total and Kaombo will secure the sustainable growth of Total E & P Angola's offshore resources.
Delivered by DNV GL's Noble Denton Marine Assurance service area, the MWS activities will focus upon the review of the design documentation and the execution of critical marine operations. The MWS team will support Kaombo project teams in assuring the project transportation and installations are conducted to recognised guidelines, standards and client internal requirements. The project sees the installation of the largest single award Subsea, Umbilical, Risers and Flowlines (SURF) contract ever to be placed. The extensive ultra deepwater development plan comprises the installation of 300 km of flowlines and 20 manifolds to connect 59 wells to the two VLCC's converted into turret moored Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessels.
