Technip Wins Marathon North Sea Contract

French oilfield services firm Technip announced Tuesday that it has won a contract from Marathon Oil Norge to work on the ongoing expansion of the subsea drill centers at Kneler B and Volund in the Alvheim area of the North Sea.

Water depths in the area are around 400 feet and the subsea work will be performed by use of remotely-operated vehicles as well as by divers.
 
The contract includes engineering, fabrication, installation and diving tie-ins of pipeline spools, including protection covers and installation of a manifold.
 
Technip's operating center in Stavanger, Norway will execute the contract. The offshore construction work will take place in 2012 and 2013. The Skandi Arctic, a diving support vessel from Technip's fleet, will be used for the work.
