Sakarya Gas Field contract awarded to consortium
International oilfield services company Schlumberger announced on Oct. 15 a significant contract award by the Turkish Petroleum Corporation (TPAO or TP) for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of end-to-end production solutions for the Sakarya Gas Field, Turkey's largest gas reserve.
The contract is awarded to Schlumberger and Subsea 7, an engineering company registered in Luxembourg and headquartered in London, as part of a consortium.
The integrated project scope will cover subsurface solutions to onshore production, including well completions, subsea production systems (SPS), subsea umbilicals, risers, flowlines (SURF), and an early production facility (EPF), Schlumberger said in a statement.
Schlumberger will deliver the well completions scope and the design, construction and commissioning of the early production facility. The SPS and SURF scope will be delivered by OneSubsea, the subsea technologies, production and processing systems division of Schlumberger, and Subsea 7.
"This end-to-end production solutions contract award demonstrates the confidence placed in our ability to accelerate discovery to first gas and enhance value creation for TP in the Sakarya offshore gas field," said Donald Ross, the head of production systems at Schlumberger.
"Through open collaboration and by leveraging innovative production solutions, Schlumberger will drive local content value creation and remains committed to supporting Turkey's energy sector," he added.
Subsea 7 also confirmed the award of a major contract worth over $750 million by TPAO.
Project management and engineering have already commenced and will be managed from the Subsea 7 office in Istanbul, it said.
