In February 2021, Chariot Transitional Energy and Subsea Integration Alliance signed a collaboration agreement to begin work on the Anchois gas development project, which is within the Lixus Licence, 40 km [24.9 mi] off the coast of Morocco. A one-team integrated, collaborative approach was adopted to accelerate first gas to maximise Chariot’s return on investment, and the project has the potential to contribute to Morocco’s growing economy, which currently relies heavily on energy imports and coal.
Following this initial work, Chariot announced in June 2022 that it had awarded SLB and Subsea7, working together as Subsea Integration Alliance, a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract for the Phase 1 development. The integrated project scope includes subsea production systems (SPS) and subsea umbilicals, risers, and flowlines (SURF), which will be delivered by Subsea Integration Alliance, and the construction, operation, and maintenance of a central production facility (CPF), which will be delivered by SLB.
First gas is scheduled for late 2024 or early 2025. Keep up with how the Anchois gas development project is progressing by periodically checking the timeline below, which will be updated as the project reaches its milestones.
