Technip to perform subsea work at Triton FPSO in North Sea

Offshore staff

PARIS – Technip has won a brownfield subsea contract for the Triton FPSO operated by Dana Petroleum in the UK central North Sea.

As part of replacement of existing subsea assets, Technip’s scope of work covers project management and engineering, including installation of two flexible risers; fabrication and installation of one dynamic umbilical riser; removal and recovery of existing assets at the FPSO vessel and, additional installation, repair, and maintenance works.

The vessel is 193 km (120 mi) east of Aberdeen, UK, at a water depth of approximately 90 m (295 ft). It produces oil and gas from Bittern, Guillemot West and North West, Clapham, Pict, and Saxon, all of which are tied back to the FPSO vessel via subsea pipelines and manifolds.

Technip’s operating center in Aberdeen will execute this contract which is a continuation of similar work successfully completed in 2014.

The company will leverage its integrated approach, as Technip Umbilicals will manufacture the umbilical at its plant in Newcastle, UK, while the diving support vessel Orelia will undertake the installation.

Joint venture partners in Triton are Dana Petroleum (E&P) Ltd. (51.966%), Shell U.K. Ltd. (26.42%), Esso Exploration and Production UK Ltd. (20%), and Endeavour Energy UK Ltd. (1.614%).
