Technip Wins New Subsea Contract West of Shetland

French oilfield services firm Technip reported Tuesday that it has been awarded a new subsea contract for the Glenlivet project, West of Shetland, by Total E&P UK.

The latest contract builds upon a previous award by Total for the Edradour Subsea Development that is located some 45 miles northwest of the Shetland Islands. It will involve the parallel development of the Glenlivet field, which is located nearby.

The Glenlivet specific scope includes:

  • Fabrication and installation of a 12-inch production pipeline and a six-inch mono-ethylene glycol pipeline, complete with a two-inch piggy-backed service line.
  • Supply and installation of steel tube umbilicals, manufactured at Technip's umbilicals facility in Newcastle, UK.
  • Supply and installation of flexible tails from Flexi France, the group's manufacturing plant in Le Trait, France.
  • Frabrication and installation of a pipeline end manifold, flowline end terminations, flexible tails and rigid well tie-in spools, as well as the installation of templates and manifolds.
  • Rock dumping and pre-commissioning.

Technip said its operating center in Oslo, Norway, will execute the project alongside the previously-awarded Edradour project, while the pipelines for the project will be fabricated at the firm's spool base at Evanton, UK. Technip vessels will perform the installation in the summer seasons of 2016 and 2017.

Technip President North Sea Canada Knut Boe commented in a company statement:

"It is very good to see the benefits of the synergies between these two projects being realized by Total's award of this extra scope to Technip."
