Technip awarded substantial subsea contract for the Delta House project, in the Gulf of Mexico
PARIS -- Technip was awarded by LLOG Exploration Offshore a substantial contract for the development of the Delta House field, located in the Mississippi Canyon area of the United States Gulf of Mexico.
This contract covers the project management, engineering, fabrication, installation and pre-commissioning of more than 200 km of infield and export flowlines and risers. The water depth of this development is comprised between 100 and 2,000 m.
Technip's operating center in Houston, Texas will perform the overall project management. The infield flowlines and risers will be welded at the Group’s spoolbase in Mobile, Alabama. The offshore installation is expected to be performed in the second half of 2014 by vessels from Technip’s fleet: the Deep Blue will lay the deepwater infield lines while the G1200 construction vessel will install the export flowlines.
Frederic Delormel, Technip’s EVP and COO Subsea, has declared: “This new project reinforces our leadership in the United States Gulf of Mexico deepwater market. It also confirms our positioning in deep to shallow export lines, following the acquisition of Global Industries.”
