Technip Clinches Moho Nord Contract

Technip clinched an engineering, procurement, and supply contract from Total E&P Congo for the Moho Nord project in the Republic of Congo, located 47 miles (75 kilometers) offshore Pointe Noire.

The Moho Nord project consists of 2 developments: Moho Phase 1 bis and Moho Nord.

Technip's contract is part of Moho Phase 1 bis, which is a brownfield development consisting of tie-backs to the existing deepwater Alima floating production unit (FPU) and the shallow-water N’Kossa platform. The contract covers project management, detail engineering, procurement and supply for the modifications of the Alima FPU, with 2 new subsea tie-backs.

Technip’s operating center in Paris, France will manage the contract, which is due for completion in the first half of 2015. The firm will also provide support to Total for the offshore construction phase between 2014 and 2016.

“This contract, the second one awarded to Technip for the Moho Nord development project, illustrates Total E&P’s confidence in our expertise. This fast-track project represents a milestone in consolidating our presence in the high-development potential West Africa offshore market,”Jean-Marc Aubry, senior vice president of Technip’s Region A, comprising Western Europe, Africa, India and Pakistan, said in a company release.
