Technip Wins North Sea Contract

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.
