Context and environment PBF is the brownfield project division of TEPA and benefits of a matrix organization. It’s managing projects from FEED/Basic Engineering to Startup/ hand-over to Block Field Operation teams. The nature of the brownfield projects, i.e. most of the execution activities offshore are executed in SIMOPS on live FPSOs (Girassol, Dalia, Pazflor, CLOV on Block 17, Kaombo Norte and Sul on Block 32 and Begonia on Block 17/06) and congested seabed, increases the risks and consequently the challenges of the projects (coactivities with other projects and maintenance activities, minimization of production shortfalls…). 2/2 PBF is managing EPC contracts with major international Contractors but also local players including onshore prefabrication in Angola, offshore construction and Installation (FPSO modifications, SURF, SPS, SIMOPS, high number of contractors & subcontractors). Within PBF projects portfolio, the GIRASSOL and DALIA life extension projects are aiming to extend the life of the GIRASSOL/ROSA and DALIA fields for an extra 10 years. The GIRASSOL Life extension project consists of an extent of different type of activities (Maintenance works, pipeworks, hull repair, flexibles replacement, ICSS upgrade, flowlines change out, XT change out, addition of bearing pads, mooring chains replacement, wells intervention, etc.) split into Packages. The different work packages are attributed to different entities within Affiliate and not to one single entity for the full scope.
