Subsea project management and engineering company CSL is delivering its first subsea operations support project in Egypt on Burullus Gas Company's (Burullus) Simian field, 114km offshore Idku.

CSL has been contracted by sister company, DOF Egypt, to provide procurement services, project management and engineering support to Burullus, a joint venture between Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (50%), BG Group (25%) and Petronas (25%). The contract is worth £750,000.

The project involves the replacement of two glycol filtration units (GFUs) which prevent blockages in the pipelines that serve the Simian field's subsea developments. CSL will utilise an Egyptian workforce for the fabrication, assembly and test of the replacement GFUs and will provide on-site supervision of the work.

As well as managing interfaces with the project contractors, CSL will provide engineering and construction representation throughout the offshore phase of the project which will be carried out in a water depth of 825 metres by ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) from Burullus' subcontracted vessel, Saipem's DP Reel. The offshore phase of the project commenced at the beginning of August 2008 with completion scheduled for early September.

Dinesh Bissoon, Burullus Gas Company's Senior Subsea Engineer, says “Burullus awarded the contract to DOF Subsea because of its proven track record in providing subsea project management, engineering and procurement services. We're looking forward to working closely with CSL in order to deliver the project safely, within schedule and budget.”

Mark Gillespie, CSL's Managing Director says “The project marks another step in CSL's international development and demonstrates that we have the skills and expertise to deliver a full suite of subsea services in any oil and gas region in the world.”
