Offshore staff

PARIS – Technip has received two contracts to supply flexible piping to the Egina field operated by Total Upstream Nigeria offshore Nigeria.

These contracts cover the qualification and supply of 12 dynamic flexible jumpers from 3.5 in. to 12.5 in. for oil production, gas lift, water injection and gas export, to connect the single top tension risers to the FPSO, two 20.5-in. unbonded flexible pipes as oil offloading lines (OOL) connecting the FPSO to the offloading buoy, and associated equipment.

Flexi France, the group’s facility in Le Trait, will manufacture the flexible pipes, which are scheduled to be delivered in 2015 for the jumpers and in 2016 for the OOL.

“These contracts cover complex dynamic applications and include the largest flexible pipes manufactured to date by Technip…,” said Jean-François Niel, vice president of Manufacturing.

DUCO will be supplying the steel tube umbilicals for the development.
