Technip to supply flexible pipes for project in Malaysia
French oilfield services company Technip has been awarded an engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning contract by PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd (PCSB) for D18 Project.
The project covers the procurement and installation of two 8” water injection flexible pipes totalling 9.5 kilometers. The flexible pipes will connect three fixed jacket platforms which form the existing D18 infrastructure offshore Sarawak, Malaysia, at a water depth of 36 meters.
This contract is part of the 5-year Framework Agreement signed with PETRONAS in late 2014 and is in line with Technip strategy to strengthen its partnerships with its clients to drive cost optimization.
Asiaflex Products, Technip’s flexible pipe manufacturing plant located in Johor, Malaysia, will execute the contract with support from Technip’s operating centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The project is scheduled for completion in late 2015.
The flexible pipes will be manufactured at Asiaflex Products and the Deep Orient, one of Technip’s subsea construction vessel, will be mobilised for installation during the second semester of 2015.
KK Lim, President of Technip in Asia Pacific said: “This is the first work order awarded under the 5-year Framework Agreement signed with PETRONAS. We are pleased to be able to leverage our unique subsea vertical integration of product design, manufacturing and installation vessel to offer a cost effective solution to our client by using flexible pipe technology.”
