Technip has been awarded a contract by Eni for the Kitan field development project.
The Kitan field is located in approximately 350 meters of water, in an area of the Timor Sea jointly administered by Timor-Leste and Australia, 500 kilometers off the Australian coast and about 250 kilometers south of the Timor-Leste capital of Dili. The field will be developed via three subsea wells connected to the FPSO Glas Dowr.
The contract covers project management and engineering, supply and installation of 23 kilometers of flowlines and risers, and installation of the umbilical system.
Technip’s operating center in Perth, Australia will execute the contract. The pipelines will be manufactured at the group’s plant in Le Trait, France.
Offshore installation is scheduled to start in the first half of 2011 using the Venturer, a construction vessel from Technip’s fleet.
