This contract follows the conceptual engineering, which has been successfully completed by Technip. Front-end engineering design is scheduled to be completed by the second semester of 2011. It will be executed by Technip’s operating center in Abu Dhabi, as a new milestone in its continued support to Middle East clients in the early phases of their developments.
