Technip has been awarded a major* contract to develop the Bahr Essalam, Phase II development in the Central Mediterranean Sea.

This natural gas field development, which is operated by Mellitah Oil & Gas B.V. Libyan Branch, a consortium between National Oil Corporation and ENI North Africa, will be tied back to the Sabratha platform, which is situated approximately 110km off the Libyan coast in a water depth of approximately 190m.

From concept to project delivery, Technip will build on its integrated model combining its subsea and offshore capabilities. The overall scope of work will see Technip perform the overall design, detailed engineering and deliver the project management, as well as procurement, installation, tie-ins, pre-commissioning and commissioning. This will be associated with the provision of a gas gathering system, comprised of production pipelines, subsea isolation valve (SSIV), umbilicals**, as well as extensive diving and installation campaigns. It will also include modifications to the Sabratha platform regarding the topsides. All offshore mobilisations will be undertaken from Malta.

Offshore installation is scheduled for the second half of 2017 through to the second half of 2018. A range of vessels from the Group’s fleet will be involved, including Deep Energy Pipelay vessel, Deep Arctic Diving Support Vessel, and G1200 S-Lay vessel.

In addition, Technip confirms the renewal of the charter for its Skandi Vitoria vessel in Brazil and the expansion of its contracted work outside backlog also through a large contract.

*For Technip, a “major” subsea contract is ranging from €500 million - €1 billion.
**Umbilical: an assembly of steel tubes and/or hydraulic hoses which can also include electrical cables or optic fibers used to control subsea structures from a platform or a vessel.
