Technipís operating center in Aberdeen will execute the contract, which is scheduled to be completed in the second semester of 2012. Rigid pipelines will be welded at Technip spoolbase in Evanton, Scotland, while the flexible pipelines will be manufactured in the Groupís flexible pipe plant in Le Trait, France. Vessels from the Groupís fleet will be used for the campaign, including Apache II, Normand Pioneer and Wellservicer.* Umbilical: an assembly of steel tubes which can also include electrical cables or optic fibres used to control subsea structures from a platform or a vessel.
