Monday, September 21, 2015
Saipem France has awarded Cables International a major cables supply contract in excess of S$8 million to support the ultra-deepwater Kaombo FPSO project in Angola, operated by Total E&P Angola. Located 260km offshore from Luanda, Angola and in water depths ranging from 1,400m to 1,950m, the Kaombo project will develop oil fields with estimated reserves of 650MMbbl, covering an area of 800sqkm. 
 
The Kaombo development, the world’s largest ongoing project, includes two floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels, each with a production capacity of 115,000bpd and capable of producing 50MW electrical energy through gas turbines. The Kaombo project includes 59 subsea wells, connected by some 300km of subsea lines. Saipem France is the contractor in charge of the engineering, procurement, supply, construction and commissioning of the FPSOs. 
 
Cables International, Asia’s leading supplier of offshore cables, will manage this major contract from its Singapore Cables Hub where delivery will be commencing in late 2015 and throughout 2016. 
 
Brian Sweeny, Managing Director, Cables International, commented: “We are extremely proud that Saipem France has selected Cables International to support this major offshore development. We believe that it is a reflection of our international reputation to deliver top quality products and services.”
