Ceona nets Camac West Africa deal

New gig: The Normand Pacific will work for Ceona off Nigeria

UK contractor Ceona has scooped a subsea deal from US player Camac Energy for work at an oilfield off West Africa.

The London-headquarter subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines (Surf) company will install and recover umbilicals and flexible pipes at the Oyo field off Nigeria.

Ceona will also be performing some light subsea construction work in water depths up to 500 metres.

It will utilise the construction support vessel Norman Pacific, which Ceona has on charter for one year from Norwegian ship owner Solstad Shipping. It also has an option to extend that charter.

Ceona will begin offshore work on phase one of the Oyo field expansion project in July.

Neither the contract term nor value was disclosed.

The Oyo field is located in water depths of between 200 metres and 500 metres around 75 kilometres off the Nigerian coast. The field began producing in late 2009, with wells connected to the Armada Perdana floating production, storage and offloading unit.

The FPSO has a treatment capacity of 40,000 barrels per day of oil and storage capacity of up to 1 million barrels. It also has gas treatment and re-injection facilities.

This is the second contract this year that Ceona has won for work with the Normand Pacific. In February it scooped a deal from Bennu Oil & Gas to work on the Clipper contingency umbilical installation project in the US Gulf of Mexico.

The contract included the installation of a 1.1-mile umbilical and two 15-mile electrical quad cables in more than 3000 feet of water.
