Technip Bags Subsea Contract for Layang Field Off Sarawak from JX Nippon
22 October 2015France's Technip reported Thursday that it has been awarded an important subsea contract by JX Nippon Oil and Gas Exploration (Malaysia) Ltd. in the Layang field, Block SK10, offshore Sarawak, Malaysia at a water depth of 279 feet (85 meters).
The contract covers the engineering, procurement, fabrication, installation and commissioning of three flexible pipes totaling 6.1 miles (9.9 kilometers). The flexible pipes consist of two production risers and flowlines and one gas export riser and flowline, connecting shallow water platforms to a new floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit.
The Group will leverage its unique subsea integrated approach, as Technipís operating center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, will execute the contract, while the flexible flowlines will be produced in Asiaflex Products, Technipís manufacturing facility in Tanjung Langsat, Johor, Malaysia.
The installation campaign will use the Groupís multipurpose vessel, the Deep Orient and the project is scheduled to be completed in the second half of 2016.
KK Lim, president of Technip in Asia Pacific, said: "We are delighted to work with JX Nippon Oil and Gas Exploration and its main partner Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd (PCSB) on this project which is awarded under the 'Flexible Pipes Framework Agreement' signed with PCSB last year. It demonstrates the competitiveness of our flexible pipe technology for shallow water developments and the advantages of our unique subsea integrated approach as a one stop solution for cost-effective field developments."
