Amec has won a front-end engineering design (FEED) contract from Chevron subsidiary Cabinda Gulf Oil Company (CABGOC) for a significant portion of the Mafumeira Sul development project, offshore Cabinda Province, Angola. The contract is expected to run until mid-2011.

The Mafumeira Sul Project will include a central production platform complex of three platforms, two bridges and a flare tower. Oil and liquefied petroleum gas will be exported to the Malongo Oil Terminal and the Sanha floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, respectively.

The project is located in the Mafumeira field, Block 0, in water depths ranging from 150ft to 160ft, and will provide for future development of additional fields in the Southern Malongo area.

Simon Naylor, president of Amec’s Natural Resources Americas business, said: “This award, while continuing our successful relationship with delivering projects for Chevron and in Angola, further strengthens Amec’s position and experience portfolio in the development of offshore facilities, following on from recent deepwater awards in the Gulf of Mexico and offshore Brazil.”
