Technip bags substantial GirRI project phase 2 contract in Angola

PARIS, FRANCE: Technip was awarded by Total E&P Angola, an engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPIC) contract for the second phase of the girassol resources initiatives (GirRI) development project.

The field is located 210 kilometre offshore Angola, at a water depth of 1,300 metre. The offshore campaign is scheduled for the end of 2014, with the main installation vessel being from Technip’s fleet.

The contract covers the project management, engineering, fabrication and installation of; 21 kilometre of umbilicals; 13 kilometre of interconnecting power cable between the Dalia and the Girassol floating production storage and offloading units (FPSO), both delivered by Technip; and recovery and disposal of four rigid spools; and installation of eight new flexible spools.

Technip Angola Engenharia will share responsibility for the overall project management and engineering of this subsea project with Technip UK. Various steel structures will be fabricated by the Angoflex spoolbase in Dande, Angola. The flexible spools will be fabricated at Technip’s manufacturing plant in Le Trait, France.

“This contract is a significant milestone as it demonstrates Technip’s capabilities to execute a subsea project from Luanda, Angola. It is thus completely in line with Technip and its partners’ objectives to maximize the Angolan national content,” said Jean-Marc Aubry, Senior Vice President, Technip Region A.
