Technip Wins Ghana Deep Water Projects

December 2009 Vol. 236 No. 12

Technip has won two lump sum contracts from Tullow Ghana Limited for development of the Jubilee oil field in depths ranging between 1,200-1,700 meters.

The first contract comprises the engineering and fabrication of seven 10-inch and two 8-inch risers for a total length of more than 27 km. Engineering will be carried out by Technip’s operating center in Paris. Delivery is scheduled for early 2010.
The second contract covers:

  • engineering, fabrication and installation of 48 km of production and gas and water injection rigid flowlines,
  • installation of 26 km of umbilicals, nine flexible risers (supplied by Technip under the first contract) and subsea manifold and riser base structures,
  • connection of the flowlines to the wellheads and subsea manifolds, and
  • test of the entire system.

Technip’s operating center in Houston will execute the contract with support from the company’s Paris center for the installation of the flexible flowlines, the connections and offshore operations. The offshore campaign is scheduled to start in early 2010 using two vessels from the Technip fleet which will lay the rigid and flexible flowlines.
