Technip Secures Contract for MWCC's Containment Response System

Technip announced that the Marine Well Containment Company (MWCC) has awarded it a contract for the design, procurement and fabrication of the umbilical, riser and flowline components of MWCC's expanded well containment response system for the US Gulf of Mexico, set for completion in 2012.

Technip's scope of work includes two deepwater riser systems for operation in water depths up to 10,000 feet (3,000 meters) utilizing buoyancy elements, connection systems and flexible jumpers; and two shallow water systems for water depths up to 2,000 feet (600 meters) utilizing a lazy wave catenary configuration and one control umbilical.

This project will be executed by Technip's operating center in Houston, Texas, with specialist support from other Group centers. The flexible pipes will be manufactured at Technip's plant in Le Trait, France, and the umbilical will be fabricated at the Group's wholly owned subsidiary, Duco Inc., based in Channelview, Texas.

Thierry Pilenko, Chairman and CEO of Technip stated, "Technip is proud to have been chosen to deliver this critical system. I am confident that our subsea pipeline expertise, as well as our extensive experience in deepwater environments and project management, will allow us to provide optimal support to MWCC in this major project."

This contract follows the front-end engineering scope awarded to Technip in October 2010.
