Subsea contractor Technip said it was awarded a lump sum contract by Marathon Oil Company for the Ozona field development in the Gulf of Mexico. The project consists of the tie-in of a well in Garden Banks 515 to the Shell Auger platform.
The contract covers project management and surveys, engineering, procurement / fabrication and installation of a 5.6 mile-long pipe-in-pipe flowline, two Pipeline End Termination or PLETs, an anchor pile and a rigid jumper. Also the contract covers the installation of a 7.5 mile-long umbilical, Technip stated.
Technip said its operating center in Houston will execute this contract. Offshore installation is scheduled to be completed by the Deep Blue, Technip’s deepwater pipelay vessel, in the second quarter of 2010.
