Lundin awards Technip pipeline work at Broom oil field in the UK North Sea

Technip (TKPPY) has been awarded a lump sum contract, worth approximately €21 million, by Lundin Britain Limited for an augmentation pipeline at the Broom field in the UK North Sea. This field, which is located 320 kilometers North-East of Aberdeen, Scotland, is tied back to the Heather Alpha platform. The new augmentation pipeline will extend the existing Broom subsea infrastructure.

The contract covers the design, fabrication and installation of a pipe-in-pipe production flowline which will be trenched and backfilled. The work also includes a subsea structure, spoolpiece tie-ins, repositioning of a flexible riser and rockdumping for upheaval buckling.

Technip’s operating center in Aberdeen will execute the contract, which is scheduled to be completed in the third quarter of 2010. The pipelines will be welded at Technip’s Spoolbase in Evanton, Scotland. Two vessels from the Technip fleet will be used for the offshore installation campaign: the Orelia diving support vessel and the Apache II pipelay vessel, which is currently being modernised.
