Subsea 7 Picks Up CABGOC Contract Offshore Angola

Cabinda Gulf Oil Company Limited (CABGOC) – Chevron’s wholly owned subsidiary in Angola – has awarded Subsea 7 a substantial contract for the Sanha Lean Gas Connection (SLGC) project, comprising the construction of the Lean Gas Platform System in Block 0 offshore Angola.

The contract is estimated to be valued at $150 million to $300 million.

While project management and engineering works will be conducted by Subsea 7’s offices in Paris and Lisbon, fabrication will be carried out locally at Sonamet’s yard in Lobito from 2021 to 2022. Offshore operations will commence between 2022 and 2023. 

“We are delighted to have been awarded this contract by CABGOC, following a public tender. This is the result of a long-term collaboration with the client and a track record of delivering successful projects,” said Gilles Lafaye, Senior Vice President Africa, Middle East and Caspian Region. “The project reinforces Subsea 7’s presence in Angola and our commitment to support Africa’s energy industry.”

In a bid to further utilize offshore gas resources, the SLGC project will deliver lean gas from the Sanha re-injection compressors discharge to the Angola LNG facility in Soyo.
