The first contract includes the detailed engineering, procurement, fabrication, assembly, and testing of a 5-in. production static riser almost 9 km (5.6 mi) long, as well as all associated hardware.
The second award covers the installation of the pipe as a tieback to the Pompano fixed platform, in approximately 395 m (1,295 ft) of water.
Technip’s Houston operating center will manage the project, which is scheduled to be completed during the second half of 2015.
The flexible pipe will be manufactured at the group’s Asiaflex Products plant located in Tanjung Langsat, Malaysia. It will be installed using Deep Blue, the company’s deepwater pipelay vessel.
