PARIS – Technip (PARIS:TEC) has won a contract to install Discovery’s South Timbalier block 283 Junction Platform. Technip will perform the project management, engineering, transporting, installing, and pre-commissioning.

The pipeline will go between existing facilities in South Timbalier 280 and Ewing Bank 873 and the new block 283 platform. It includes 15.8 km of 12-in. pipe and 13.9 km of 30-in. pipe. Water depths range from 83 to 244 m (272 to 800 ft).

Installation is scheduled for 2013 using the G1200 as the primary vessel.
