French oilfield services firm Technip announced Thursday that it has been awarded a lump sum front-end engineering design (FEED) contract by Statoil ASA for the development of the Luva floating platform, offshore Norway, at a water depth of approximately 4,265 feet (1,300 meters).
The contract covers the design and planning for procurement, construction and transportation of a Spar hull and the mooring systems as well as the design of the steel catenary risers. The award builds on the study work (including pre-FEED) that has been ongoing since early 2010 to document the suitability of a Spar platform in Norwegian waters.
The firm said the award confirms Technip's leadership in the design of Spar platforms, mooring systems and steel catenary risers, and further confirms that the Spar continues to be the platform of choice for certain developments, not only in Gulf of Mexico and the Far East, but also in new basins, in this case the Norwegian Sea.
Technip's operating center in Houston, Texas will execute the contract in cooperation with the Technip operation centers in Norway and Finland.
