Technip announced Thursday that its wholly-owned subsidiary Duco has been awarded a contract by Bluewater Industries for the Cheviot field development, whose operator is ATP Oil & Gas.
The Cheviot field is located in Block 2/10B, approximately 61 miles (100 kilometers) east of the Shetland Isles, in the UK North Sea, at a water depth of 490 feet (150 meters). The project also includes the development of the Peter and Eclat fields.
The contract covers engineering, project management and fabrication of four static steel tube umbilicals, four dynamic thermoplastic umbilicals, and a thermoplastic Subsea Intervention Valve umbilical. The total length is 7.5 miles (12 kilometers). The umbilicals will control four drill centers from a floating semi-submersible production facility.
The subsea distribution system will also be supplied, which represents the largest SPS contract ever awarded to Duco. This scope includes umbilical termination assemblies, subsea distribution units, 64 hydraulic and electrical flying leads and other equipment.
The steel tube umbilicals and subsea distribution system will be manufactured in Duco’s facility in Houston at its Channelview facility. The thermoplastic umbilicals will be manufactured in Duco’s UK facility in Newcastle. The project is scheduled for delivery in 2014.
