SCHIEDAM, The Netherlands -- Technip is preparing for a project, including a subsea production system connecting high-rate subsea wells to a fixed platform, located approximately 6.21 mi offshore Israel.

Technip awarded Jumbo's offshore division a contract to lower the manifold onto the seabed, at a 5,390 ft water depth, and installing various other SSIV’s and valve skids at a water depth of approximately 282 ft. In addition, Jumbo will transport various equipment from U.S. Gulf Coast to Eastern Mediterranean.

The Jumbo team will also provide reliable project management and engineering services for this scope of work, including attendance of HIRAs and review of Technip procedures and analyses.

“Jumbo will appoint one of her offshore HLCV’s to complete this project in early 2019. By using one of our DP equipped heavy lift construction vessels, with its combination of transport and deepwater installation capabilities, we can provide a unique solution for the transportation and installation aspects of this project.” Brian Boutkan, head of sales & business development Americas, Jumbo Offshore.
