Technip Awarded Subsea Contract in the North Sea

29 March 2011

Technip has been awarded a contract by TAQA Bratani Ltd for the development of the Falcon field, which is located in the North Sea approximately 560km northeast of Aberdeen, in 160m of water.

The contract covers:

project management and engineering,
installation of a 6in production flexible flowline and a 4in gas lift flexible flowline,
installation of a control umbilical and a subsea distribution unit, both free-issued,
removal and replacement of a flexible riser,
trenching and backfilling of the flowlines and umbilical,
pre-commissioning, tie-ins and testing.

Technip's operating centre in Aberdeen, Scotland will execute the contract. The flowlines will be manufactured at the Group's flexible pipe plant in Le Trait, France under a separate supply contract.

Offshore installation, which will be carried out using Technip's diving support vessel Orelia, is scheduled to be completed in the second half of 2011.

This award is a milestone for Technip as it is the first contract awarded by TAQA Bratani.
