The first contract includes the detailed engineering, procurement, fabrication, assembly and testing of a five-inch production static riser (almost nine-kilometres long) as well as all associated hardware.

“Technip is proud to bring its experience and to leverage its vertical integration of product design and manufacture and installation vessel fleet to support our customer’s needs,” said Deanna Goodwin, president of Technip in North America

The second award covers the installation of the pipe as a tieback to the Pompano fixed platform, in approximately 395 metres of water depth.

Technip’s operating centre in Houston, Texas, USA, will manage the project which is scheduled to be completed during the second half of 2015.

The group will leverage its unique vertical position in the subsea business. The flexible pipe will be manufactured at the group’s Asiaflex Products plant located in Tanjung Langsat, Malaysia. It will be installed using the Deep Blue, Technip’s deepwater pipelay vessel.
