Wood Group's Alliance Engineering has been selected by EPC contractor Daewoo Shipping and Marine Engineering (DSME) to provide jacket and topsides engineering and design for Chevron's South Nemba Auxiliary (SNX) project. The SNX project is located offshore West Africa in Angola's Nemba field, in water approximately 380 feet deep.
The SNX project consists of an un-manned, four-pile jacket, multi-deck facility that will be bridge-connected to the SNA Platform. The SNX platform will include a flare boom, helideck, oil processing train, gas compression and dehydration equipment, electrical power generation, and other associated equipment. The oil processing train includes a 2-phase IP separator, a 3-phase LP separator and an oil degasser; compression equipment includes a surge gas compressor and an intermediate pressure (IP) compressor.
"Alliance looks forward to working with DSME on the SNX project," said Edmund Lunde, president of Alliance. "Our experience and expertise in offshore structures and facilities design will be a great asset to Chevron on this important Angolan project, and we appreciate the opportunity to demonstrate our capabilities once again.
