Technip (Paris:TEC) was awarded by Chevron (NYSE:CVX) a front-end engineering design (FEED) contract for two floating production units located offshore Indonesia in the Gendalo and Gehem fields at water depths of 3,500 to 6,000 feet (1,070 to 1,830 meters). 

The contract, which covers the hull, topsides, mooring systems and steel catenary risers* of the two floating production units, will be executed by Technip’s operating centers in Jakarta, Indonesia and Houston, Texas. 

This contract will be the first deep water engineering project executed by Technip in Indonesia, and demonstrates the Group's commitment to maximize local content in the execution of its projects. 

The Chevron-operated Gendalo-Gehem project is located in the Makassar Strait offshore East Kalimantan in water depths of approximately 6,000 feet. The project will include two separate hub developments, each with its own floating production unit (FPU), subsea drill centers, export gas and condensate pipelines and an onshore receiving facility. Gas from the project will be used both domestically and also converted to liquefied natural gas (LNG) at the Bontang LNG facility in Indonesia for export. Maximum daily production from the project is expected to be 1.1 billion cubic feet of natural gas and 31,000 barrels of condensate.
