Technip Awarded Gannet EPIC Contract

French oilfield services firm Technip announced Wednesday that it has been awarded an EPIC (engineering, procurement, installation and construction) contract for the Gannet F Reinstatement project in the North Sea.

The contract – awarded by Shell UK – involves the replacement of the Gannet F flow line at the Gannet Alpha Platform, which is located approximately 110 miles east of Aberdeen, Scotland. It covers the fabrication and the laying of a 7.5-mile pipe-in-pipe, installation of a 4.5-inch gas lift pipeline and the trenching and installation of a 7.5-mile umbilical.

Technip said its operating center in Aberdeen, Scotland will execute the contract, which is scheduled to be completed in the second half of 2013. The company's spoolbase in Evanton, Scotland, will fabricate the pipe-in-pipe and DUCO, Technip's wholly-owned subsidiary in Newcastle, England, will manufacture the umbilical.

Technip's pipelay vessel, Apache II, will be used for the offshore campaign.

Technip UK Managing Director Bill Morrice commented in a company statement:

"We are delighted to have been awarded this contract which strengthens our relationship with Shell UK. Our vast experience in providing cost-effective and efficient pipe-in-pipe solutions for our clients will help us execute this project safely and effectively. We look forward to supporting Shell to maximize production from the Gannet field."
