ExxonMobil Awards Julia Field Contract to Technip

French oilfield services firm Technip S.A. reported Wednesday that it has been awarded a "substantial" lump-sum contract by Exxon Mobil Corp. for the development of the Julia field in the Gulf of Mexico (GOM).

The Julia field is located in the Walker Ridge are of the GOM in water depths of approximately 7,200 feet.

Technip said the contract covers the project management, engineering, fabrication, installation and pre-commissioning of approximately 30 miles of 10.75-inch outer diameter insulated flowlines, steel catenary risers and flowline end terminations

Technip's operating center in Houston, Texas will perform the overall project management, with detailed flowline design being completed by Technip subsidiary Genesis. The flowlines and risers will be welded at the group's spoolbase in Mobile, Alabama. The offshore installation is expected to be completed in 2015 by the Deep Blue, one of Technip's deepwater pipelay vessels.

David Dickson, Technip's senior vice president for the North America region, commented in a company statement:

"Following the award of the Hadrian South natural gas project by Exxon Mobil Corporation in 2012, this new project further reinforces our leading position in the Gulf of Mexico ultra-deepwater market."
