Technip to Install Gjoa Infield Pipelines for Statoil
Technip has been awarded a contract by Statoil, worth approximately Euro 24 million (NOK 190 million) for the fabrication and installation of the infield pipelines on Gjoa. The Gjoa field is located in the blocks 35/9 and 36/7 on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, approximately 45 km west of Sognefjorden, and 60 km northeast of Troll C. The water depth in the area is between 360 to 380 meters.
The project consists of fabrication and installation of 25 km of oil and gas production and gas lift pipelines (14", 12" and 4.9").
Technip's operations and engineering center in Oslo, Norway will execute the
contract. The pipelines will be welded at Technip's spoolbase located in Orkanger, Norway. The Apache, a pipelay vessel from Technip's fleet specialized in the reel lay method, will install the pipelines. Offshore installation is scheduled for 2009.
