EnQuest selects Technip for large subsea contract

PARIS -- EnQuest has awarded Technip a large engineering, procurement, installation and construction (EPCI) contract for the Kraken development in the North Sea,  400 km northeast of Aberdeen and 130 km east of Shetland, at a water depth of approximately 120 m.

The contract covers various project management engineering and installation works, which include:

- fabrication and pipelay of approximately 50 km of rigid pipe, 25 km of metallurgically clad pipe and 25 km of HDPE lined,

- installation of 3 umbilicals totaling 14 km,

- installation of 7 km of flexible risers and jumpers,

- template and manifold installation at three drill centers,

- diverless tie-ins to pipelines and manifolds,

- pipeline flooding, hydro testing and leak testing.

Technip’s operating center in Aberdeen will execute the contract.

The group will leverage its unique vertical position in the subsea business. The group’s spoolbase in Evanton, UK, will weld and load-out the rigid pipe and Technip umbilicals, Technip’s wholly-owned subsidiary in Newcastle, UK, will manufacture the umbilical. All construction work on the project will be undertaken via diverless construction methods.

A number of vessels from the Technip fleet will be utilized for the offshore campaign, including Technip’s Deep Energy.
