Technip has been awarded an installation contract by TAQA Bratani Ltd. in the Falcon field in the North Sea.
Technip will carry out the work in approximately 160-meters of water about 560-km off the coast of Aberdeen, Scotland. The contract covers the following: project management and engineering; installation of a 6-inch production flexible flowline and a 4-inch gas lift flexible flowline; a control umbilical and a subsea distribution unit, both free-issued; removal and replacement of a flexible riser; trenching and backfilling of the flowlines and umbilical; and the pre-commissioning, tie-ins and testing.
Technip’s operating center in Aberdeen, Scotland will execute the contract. The flowlines will be manufactured at the Group’s flexible pipe plant in Le Trait, France under a separate supply contract. Offshore installations will be carried out using Technip’s diving support vessel Orelia. Project completion is slated in the second half of 2011.
