PARIS – JX Nippon Oil and Gas Exploration (Malaysia) has contracted Technip to provide subsea installations for the Layang field development in block SK10 offshore Sarawak. Water depth is 85 m (279 ft).
The scope covers engineering, procurement, fabrication, installation, and commissioning of three flexible pipes totaling 9.9 km (6.1 mi) in length. These will comprise two production risers and flowlines and one gas export riser and flowline, connecting shallow-water platforms to a new FPSO.
Technip’s center in Kuala Lumpur will manage the program with flexible flowlines that will be produced at the company’s Asiaflex Products plant in Tanjung Langsat, Johor.
The Deep Orient will install the pipes, with all work due to be completed in the second half of 2016.
KK Lim, president of Technip in Asia Pacific, said the project was awarded under a flexible pipes framework agreement signed last year with JX Nippon’s partner Petronas Carigali.
