Technip Wins Nigerian Umbilicals Deal

French oilfield services firm Technip reported Thursday that it has been awarded an umbilical supply contract for the Egina field, offshore Nigeria, by the operator of the field, Total Upstream Nigeria.

The Egina field is located in Oil Mining Lease 130, approximately 135 miles from Port Harcourt in water depths of between 3,775 feet and 5,740 feet.

Technip said the contract covers project management, engineering and the manufacture of approximately 47 miles of steel tube umbilicals, including production, water injection and subsea isolation valve umbilicals. The firm added that a significant amount of project management and engineering work will be carried out locally in Nigeria, while the umbilicals will be manufactured at Technip's DUCO subsidiary in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.

Technip expects to deliver the umbilicals in 2016.

DUCO Managing Director Jean-Louis Rostaing commented in a company statement:

"This award is recognition of the quality and performance of the umbilicals provided by Technip as well as our ability to continuously innovate to better answer our clients' needs. We are proud to have been awarded this contract, notably thanks to our strong relationship with the client and our ability to contribute to Nigerian content development."
