Italy's Saipem Wins Two Contracts with Eni, BP Worth $700 Million

(Reuters) — Italian energy services group Saipem on Thursday said it was awarded two new contracts by Eni's Eni Congo and BP, worth a total of around $700 million.

The new contacts came after the Italian group announced a $1 billion contract in Libya on Wednesday and two others in Romania and Germany last week for a total value of around 1.8 billion euros ($2 billion).

The first contract announced on Thursday, with Eni Congo, is for the conversion of the Scarabeo 5 semisubmersible drilling unit, in the Republic of Congo offshore, into a separation and boosting plant, or Floating Production Unit (FPU), feeding natural gas to a nearby floating LNG unit.

This is part of Eni's Congo LNG Project, the country's first natural gas liquefaction project, which is expected to reach an overall LNG production capacity of 3 million tons per year, or approximately 4.5 billion cubic meters per year, from 2025, Saipem said in a statement.

The contract with BP is for offshore activities in the Gulf of Mexico, related to the Argos FPU, a facility designed for oil and gas production in deepwater environments, the company said.
