Wood has been awarded a contract by Woodside Energy for the Sangomar FPSO development, located 100km south of Dakar, Senegal.

 

The floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) facility is specifically designed for the processing of hydrocarbons and the storage of oil before being transported to markets around the world. On completion in 2023, the FPSO will have a production capacity of approximately 100,000 barrels per day of crude oil, which will provide revenue to help deliver sustainable long-term economic and social benefits for Senegal.

 

A multidisciplinary Wood team will implement a combined production management system (PMS) and virtual metering system (VMS) at the Sangomar FPSO control room and Woodside's onshore offices in Senegal and Perth, leveraging Wood's digital capabilities and Virtuoso® platform.

 

The Virtuoso® PMS and VMS will provide real-time monitoring of the production system together with decision support for complex operations and advanced surveillance for hydrate and wax management. The PMS will ensure continuity of production and minimised flaring which reduces the greenhouse gas emissions and methane intensity of Sangomar. Further, the VMS minimises the number of subsea flow meters required for the development.

 

As a leading process digital twin, Virtuoso monitors and optimises over 30% of the world's LNG systems using multiphase flow models combined with real-time data, delivering a real-time decision support system to monitor, control, optimise and plan production operations from pore to transmission systems.

 

Prabu Parthasarathy, Vice President, Intelligent Operations at Wood, said:

 

'We are delighted to be able to continue our longstanding relationship with Woodside following the award of this new contract. As one of Africa’s leading natural gas markets, boasting over 450 billion cubic meters of reserves, Senegal is aiming to establish itself as a regional gas producer and exporter. We are proud to be part of this first-of-its-kind project for Senegal, which will play a key role in helping to achieve this goal.'

 

The recent contract win follows on from Wood’s ongoing work with Woodside executing the flow assurance design analysis for the Sangomar FPSO Development, drawing on its extensive experience of complex operations of the field which include hydrate and wax management, hot oil and dead oil circulation, and gas lift optimisation.

  Valaris Limited announced that it has sold heavy duty modern jackups VALARIS 113 and 114 to ADES Saudi Limited for a total of $125 million. VALARIS 113 and 114 are PPL Pacific Class 400 jackups, both delivered in 2012. Both rigs have been stacked in the Philippines since they completed their last contracts in late 2015.   President and Chief Executive Officer Anton Dibowitz said, “We are pleased to have closed the sale of the VALARIS 113 and 114 at values which are highly accretive to our shareholders. Each rig had been stacked for more than six years and would have required meaningful capital to reactivate. We will continue to take a rational approach to fleet management, including regularly assessing our fleet for retirement and divestiture candidates."   Source: Valaris   Join our mailing list here We are #1 on Google and Bing for the "Largest Mobile Energy Network" Come join our community!
