BP Exploration & Production awarded Technip a lump sum project for the design, engineering, fabrication, installation and pre-commissioning of the new production pipeline systems on the south side of the Thunder Horse production drilling quarters unit.
At a water depth of 1,900 meters, the field development is located in Mississippi Canyon Blocks 778 and 822, in the ultra-deepwater Gulf of Mexico environment.
The contract covers project management and engineering, Coating, fabrication, installation and permanent anchoring of two rigid production flowlines of 3.25-km each with four pipeline end terminations, and pre-commissioning and testing.
Technip’s operating center in Houston will handle overall project management. The infield flowlines will be welded at the group’s spoolbase in Mobile, AL.
