- Business & Finance
Technip has been awarded a substantial Engineering, Procurement, Installation, Construction (EPIC) lump sum contract by BP Trinidad and Tobago LLC for the development of the Juniper project, to be located off the South East coast of Trinidad.
For Technip, a “substantial” offshore contract is ranging from €250 to €500 million. The scope of work consists of design, detailed engineering, procurement, construction, load out and mechanical completion of:
- 4,300 short ton topsides that can process 590 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) of gas,
- 6,100 short ton jacket.
The contract will also cover the design, detailed engineering, procurement, fabrication, transport, installation and pre-commissioning of:
- 5 off, 10” and 8” internal diameter flexible flowlines,
- 26” outside diameter , 10km concrete coated rigid subsea pipeline,
- an extensive diving campaign to support clients LNG train and field turnaround,
- large number of subsea structures and tie-in spools.
Additionally, it includes the transport and installation of client supplied umbilicals, trees and flying leads.
Technip’s operating center in Houston, Texas, USA, will perform the overall design, detailed engineering and project management. Offshore installation is scheduled for the second half of 2016.
National content is of strategic importance to Technip, the company says. Platform fabrication will be performed in Trinidad using a local fabricator. Technip will bring its worldwide fabrication competencies and expertise to this project.
The flexible pipes will be manufactured at Technip’s Flexi France facility in Le Trait, France. Technip’s S-Lay pipelay vessel, the G-1200, will install the rigid pipelines. Additional vessels from Technip’s fleet will install the flexibles as well as umbilicals, and provide construction work support.
Following the FEED support, project planning and detailed engineering work, in which Technip and its subsidiary Genesis have been involved for almost a year, this award validates the Group’s strategy of early involvement to design an effective project execution plan.
Deanna Goodwin, President North America, Technip, stated: “This award reinforces Technip’s leading position in the offshore and subsea EPIC market of North America Region. Leveraging Technip’s unique combination of complementary assets, technologies and capabilities, this project offers comprehensive platform and subsea design as well as detailed engineering solutions.”
