BP seals Spar accord with Technip

Offshore staff

PARIS -- Technip has been awarded a 10-year master agreement by BP Exploration and Production, Inc. This covers the design, procurement and construction of hulls and mooring systems for Spar platforms in the Gulf of Mexico, and the design of top tension risers for dry tree units.

The award follows a design competition. Technip’s operating center in Houston will execute the agreement, which stipulates that the Spars will be fabricated at the group’s yard in Pori, Finland, where 12 of Technip’s 14 Spars have already been manufactured.

Within the framework of this agreement, pre-FEED for the Mad Dog Phase II Spar has already begun. The FEED is due to star in the second half of 2011.
