Saipem has landed $900 million-worth of contracts for work on a new gas project offshore Angola.

The Italian player has been awarded three new contracts — one onshore and two offshore — by the Azule Energy-led New Gas Consortium (NGC), which is developing the Quiluma and Maboqueiro fields.

Saipem is responsible for the engineering, procurement and construction — plus hook-up and commissioning assistance — of the Quiluma platform and of an associated onshore natural gas processing plant.

NGC’s other consortium members are state-owned Sonangol P&P, Chevron and TotalEnergies.

The project represents the first non-associated gas scheme in Angolan waters and will provide gas for the domestic economy and also supplement feedstock to the Angola LNG plant.

It is unclear which contractor will handle EPC work on the Maboqueiro platform.
