EnerMech has been awarded a pre-commissioning contract in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Gabon by Technip.

The workscope is for precommissioning services on the Congo Gabon Flexible Replacement Project (FRP), is estimated to be worth over £1 million and is expected to last 12 months or more.

The Co-Ga FRP follows a review by Total which identified the need to replace flexible lines and piping in Gabon’s Anguille, Baudroie-Baliste, Torpille, Mandaros Barbier and Gonelle fields and in the Sendji, Yanga and Tchibouela fields in Congo.

The Aberdeen-based mechanical engineering group will perform gauge pigging on flexible flowlines post installation and topside hydrotesting services plus the dewatering of wet gas and gas lift flexible flowlines.

David Drysdale, general manager of EnerMech’s Process Pipeline and Umbilical Division, said the company’s ability to identify savings in vessel time, overall equipment spread and increase deck layout flexibility, had contributed to being awarded the contract.

Mr Drysdale said: “It will be the first time we have worked in Congo and Gabon but we have a strong track record working with Technip on other West African projects such as GirRi in Angola.

“Our project management capabilities and innovative solutions to help reduce client risk and cost was an important factor in winning this work, while our knowledge of the West African oil and gas sector, experience of our personnel and speciality equipment were also important factors for the client.”
