The field is located in Mississippi Canyon blocks 214 and 215 in water depths ranging from 1,330 to 1,823 m (4,364 to 5,981 ft).
The contract consists of:
- Project management and engineering services
- Fabrication and installation of approximately 23 km (14 mi) of pipe-in-pipe flowline
- Fabrication and installation of approximately 2 km (1.2 mi) of steel catenary riser (SCR)
- Design, fabrication, and installation of in-line sled, flowline end termination
- Fabrication of jumper
- Pre-commissioning for the flowline and SCR system.
Technip’s operating center in Houston will manage the overall project. The SCR and flowline system will be fabricated at its spoolbase in Mobile, Alabama.
The offshore installation is expected to be performed in the summer of 2016 by its ultra-deepwater pipelay and subsea construction vessel Deep Blue.
Deanna Goodwin, president of Technip in North America, commented: “Technip is delighted to continue its strong long-lasting relationship with Deep Gulf Energy and to bring and share its unique experience to this new project.”
