A consortium led by Schlumberger and Subsea 7 has been awarded an engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract for end-to-end production solutions for the Sakarya gas field, according to a press release.

This agreement will cover everything from subsurface solutions to onshore production, which includes well completions, subsea production systems (SPS), subsea umbilicals, risers, flowlines (SURF), and an early production facility (EPF). Hence, Schlumberger will deliver the well completions as well as the design, construction, and commissioning of the early production facility, which will be capable of handling up to 350 million standard cubic feet of gas per day (MMscf/d).   OneSubsea®, which is Schlumberger’s and Subsea 7’s division for subsea technologies, production, and processing systems,  will be responsible for the SPS and SURF scope.

It is worth noting that the Sakarya gas field is Turkey’s largest gas reserve. Subsea development will take place 100 nautical miles into the Black Sea.
