Chariot Oil & Gas Ltd has signed a Collaboration Agreement with Subsea Integration Alliance to work together to enable the front-end design, engineering, procurement, construction, installation and operation of the Anchois gas development project in Morocco. 

Subsea Integration Alliance is a non-incorporated strategic global alliance between Subsea 7 and OneSubsea, the subsea technologies, production, and processing systems division of Schlumberger.

Chariot and Subsea Integration Alliance will adopt a 'One-team', integrated and collaborative approach to safely fast-track first gas to maximise the return on investment.

The scope of the agreement covers:

  • Front-end engineering support and engineering design work.
  • Engineering, procurement, construction, installation, pre-commissioning and commissioning work.
  • Operations and maintenance of the facilities.
  • Commitment to ESG and the importance of contributing to social development through the creation of direct and indirect jobs in Morocco.

Stuart Fitzgerald, CEO, Subsea Integration Alliance commented: "We are pleased to be starting a journey with Chariot on the exciting Anchois gas development in Morocco. We believe the Subsea Integration Alliance “One-team” collaboration with Chariot will help unlock the planning and execution of the development and uncover the true value of the project for all stakeholders.”

Adonis Pouroulis, Acting CEO, Chariot Oil & Gas Limited commented: "This Collaboration Agreement with Subsea Integration Alliance further endorses our view that the Anchois development is a high value project. With the recent announcement on potential project finance, Chariot is clearly showing that it is delivering on what it said it would do, namely, advancing the commerciality of the Lixus asset and generating value to shareholders in the process.

We believe that 2021 will be an exciting year for the business, as we look to commence with our operational plans at Anchois and further enhance our portfolio to include other commercial opportunities along the theme of energy transition. We look forward to keeping our investors updated on progress with these initiatives over the coming months.”

The Lixus licence, which is on the Atlantic coast of Morocco, just south of Spain, contains the significant Anchois gas discovery with audited total remaining recoverable resource (2C & 2U) of in excess of 1 trillion ft3. The sampled gas is 97% methane, without impurities, and is held in high quality porous and permeable sandstone reservoirs.

The development plan from a pre-FEED study consists of two subsea wells tied into a subsea manifold with a 40 km offshore flowline connected to an onshore gas processing facility, from which a short 40 km pipeline connects to the trunk pipeline to Europe allowing access not only to the growing Moroccan energy market but also to the European gas market.
