French oilfield services firm Technip announced Monday that it has been awarded a lump sum contract by Hess Corporation for the development of the Tubular Bells field, which is located in the Mississippi Canyon area of the Gulf of Mexico at a water depth of approximately 4,500 feet (1,370 meters).
The contract covers the design, engineering, fabrication and subsea installation of more than 28 miles (45 kilometers) of flowlines, steel catenary risers, pipeline end terminations, piles and structures.
Technip's operating center in Houston, Texas will perform the overall project management. The flowlines and risers will be welded at the firm's spoolbase in Mobile, Alabama.
Offshore installation is scheduled to be completed with the Deep Blue, one of Technip's deepwater pipelay vessels, during the first half of 2013.
