Technip was awarded by Total E&P Congo a major lump-sum contract for the engineering, procurement, supply, construction, installation (EPSCI) and pre-commissioning for the Moho Nord development project. This project is located approximately 47 miles (75 kilometers) off the coast of the Republic of the Congo, at water depths ranging from 2,133 feet to 650 to 3,609 feet (1,100 meters).
This project consists of two developments, the Moho Phase 1bis and Moho Nord, with first oils being respectively expected in 2015 and 2016. The Moho Nord development, which will be tied back to a new floating production unit (FPU) and a newbuild tension-leg platform (TLP), includes an oil export line to the Djeno onshore terminal and will also be tied back to the shallow-water N'Kossa platform for gas exchange. The Moho Phase 1Bis development consists of tie-backs to the existing deepwater Alima FPU.
This contract covers the project management, engineering, supply, fabrication and installation of:
It also includes the installation of client-supplied manifolds and pumps, control system components and multiphase jumpers.
The offshore campaign will be spread over 2014, 2015 and 2016, with the primary installation vessels being the G1200 (Technip BV), a rigid pipe S-lay and heavy-lift construction vessel, and the Deep Pioneer (Technip UK), a multipurpose deepwater vessel. Technip's operating center in Paris, France will carry out the overall project management and engineering of this fast-track and multi-disciplinary subsea project. The flexible pipes will be fabricated at Flexi France, Technip's manufacturing plant in Le Trait, France and the umbilicals will be fabricated at the Group's new manufacturing unit in Newcastle, United Kingdom. As part of the project, Technip will engage with Pointe-Noire-based contractors to fabricate various steel structures in Congo.
"This strategic contract confirms Technip's leadership on large and complex EPSCI projects as it is the largest subsea contract that the Group will execute on its own. This award was made possible thanks to our unique vertically-integrated organization and the acquisition of Global Industries in 2011, notably with the S-Lay and heavy-lift capabilities of the G1200 vessel," Technip's Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Subsea Frédéric Delormel said.
