Fluor, as the managing contractor, was responsible for the design, engineering, procurement and construction management of the offshore drilling and production platform, as well as the pipeline and onshore reseparation and storage facilities. The entire Abidjan facility handles 15,000 B/D of oil and 15 MMSCFD of gas.
The offshore drilling and production platform includes an eight-legged steel jacket structure supporting three production modules, three drilling equipment cap bridges, and drilling rig plus living quarters and helideck. Oil and gas are separated on the platform before transfer to shore through a 10-inch diameter coated offshore pipeline and 10-inch buried onshore pipeline.
Onshore, Fluor was responsible for the facilities where the oil and gas are received. The oil is processed to reduce vapor pressure and stored for pumping to the adjacent S.I.R. refinery.
Upon completion of the onshore and offshore facilities, Fluor began work on the second phase of the project. During this phase, Fluor provided three additional modules for gas lift, waterflood and power generation for the Belier Field platform.
