Technip awarded significant Brunei contract by Total
PARIS -- Technip has been awarded a significant contract by Total E&P Borneo B.V., covering engineering, procurement, supply, construction and commissioning (EPSCC). This project aims at the modification of the onshore facilities as well as the construction of a new onshore pipeline, in order to transport Maharaja Lela & Jamalulalam South (MLJS) gas to the Brunei Liquefied Natural Gas (BLNG) plant.
The onshore modification work includes de-bottlenecking of the processing plant to enable the handling of up to 5 million cubic meters per day (annual average) from the greater MLJ field, and associated assistance in start-up and performance test.
Technip’s operating center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, will execute the contract with support from the office of the Group based in Brunei. The project is scheduled for completion in the second half of 2015.
Lim Kwee Keong, senior V.P. of Technip in Asia Pacific, stated, “Following the front-end engineering design that we have completed in 2012, Technip was keen on undertaking the EPSCC contract. Vital for the brownfield tie-in of the MLJS project, our familiarity with the onshore facilities has made the difference and gave us leverage in this much sought-after development.”
