Subsea 7 has received a contract from BP for engineering, procurement, construction and installation of the subsea umbilicals, risers and pipeline systems and associated subsea architecture for the deepwater Mad Dog 2 development, located approximately 190 miles south of New Orleans.
“The Mad Dog 2 project is a significant award for Subsea 7,” Craig Broussard, Subsea 7 Vice President for the Gulf of Mexico, said. “It combines Subsea 7’s capability with our Subsea Integration Alliance value offering to reduce risk and provide lower cost solutions for BP. This project serves as a step-change of how we work in the region and in Subsea 7’s ability to deliver superior value to the industry.”
Project management and engineering will take place in Houston, Texas with support provided from the company Global Project Centre in London, UK. Offshore installation activities are scheduled to take place in 2019 and 2020.
The Mad Dog 2 development also represents the first major U.S. project to use the company’s Swagelining polymer lining technology.
