Technip has been awarded a contract by Deep Gulf Energy III, LLC (DGE) for the development of the South Santa Cruz and Barataria fields.
The fields are located in Mississippi Canyon, offshore New Orleans, in the Gulf of Mexico, in approximately 2,000 meters of water depth.
The contract consists of: Project management and engineering services; Fabrication and installation of approximately 23 kilometers of pipe-in-pipe flowline; Design, fabrication and installation of flowline end terminations; Fabrication and installation of jumpers; and Pre-commissioning for the flowline.
Technip’s operating center in Houston, Texas, USA, will manage the overall project. The flowline system will be fabricated at the Group’s spoolbase in Mobile, Alabama, USA.
The offshore installation is expected to be performed in the second half of 2016 by Technip’s deepwater pipelay vessel the Deep Blue.
Deanna Goodwin, president of Technip in North America, said: “This contract award by DGE is a testament to their continued trust in Technip’s execution expertise and asset capabilities. I am pleased that this award comes in conjunction with the successful completion of the Kodiak project and with the recent award of the Odd Job project. This will allow us the opportunity to further strengthen the relationship with our client into 2016.”
