Technip New Oil Contract

PARIS, FRANCE: Technip was awarded by Chevron North Sea Ltd a substantial engineering, procurement, installation and construction (EPIC) contract for the Alder field, located in the central North Sea, about 200 kilometre North-East of Aberdeen, Scotland. Chevron is developing the Alder field as a subsea tieback to the Britannia Bridge Link Platform. Technip’s operating centre in Aberdeen will execute the contract, which is scheduled to be completed in the second half of 2015.

The contract will cover a wide scope of work, from engineering to manufacturing and installation of the detailed design and pipelay of a 28-kilometre 16” pipe-in-pipe system, installation of a 28-kilometre hybrid umbilical, various subsea works including the installation of a manifold structure including high integrity pressure protection system, subsea isolation valve structure, valves and spoolpiece components.

“We are delighted to be reigniting our relationship with Chevron with this substantial contract that will allow us to support them in bringing the Alder field onstream. Technip has a proven track record in delivering EPIC contracts of this scale and our unique vertical integration is an added-value advantage for our clients as our capabilities cover the entire value chain for subsea infrastructures. The UK Continental Shelf is still an exciting place to be with many major fields being developed both around traditional developments and in deeper waters West of Shetland, a market Technip is keen to maximize opportunities,” said Bill Morrice, Managing Director, Technip UK.
