Technip awarded North Sea Gullfaks tie-ins

Offshore staff

PARIS – Statoil (OSE:STL) has contracted Technip (PARIS:TEC) to construct, install, and tie in flowlines for the Gullfaks South field development in the northern Norwegian North Sea.

The location is 190 km (118 mi) northwest of Bergen in water depths of 130-220 m (426-722 ft).

Development calls for two manifolds tied back to the Gullfaks South infrastructure via 20 km (12.4 mi) of flowlines, and involves use of direct electrical heating and pipe-in-pipe flowline technology.

Technip’s operating center in Oslo will manage the program, with the company’s spoolbase in Orkanger, Norway, fabricating the flowlines. Offshore operations, scheduled for 1Q 2014, will be performed by the Apache II pipelay vessel and a newbuild construction vessel.
