Technip bags natural gas contract in Mediterranean Sea

PARIS, FRANCE: Technip SA has been awarded a major natural gas field development contract to develop the Bahr Essalam, Phase II in the Central Mediterranean Sea.

This natural gas field development, which is operated by Mellitah Oil & Gas BV, Libyan Branch, a consortium between National Oil Corporation and ENI North Africa, will be tied back to the Sabratha platform, which is situated approximately 110km off the Libyan coast in a water depth of approximately 190m.

Technip will build on its integrated model combining its subsea and offshore capabilities. The overall scope of work will see Technip perform the overall design, detailed engineering and deliver the project management, as well as procurement, installation, tie-ins, pre-commissioning and commissioning.

This will be associated with the provision of a gas gathering system, comprised of production pipelines, subsea isolation valve (SSIV), umbilicals, as well as extensive diving and installation campaigns. It will also include modifications to the Sabratha platform regarding the topsides. All offshore mobilisations will be undertaken from Malta.

Offshore installation is scheduled for the second half of 2017 through to the second half of 2018. A range of vessels from the group’s fleet will be involved, including deep energy pipelay vessel, deep arctic diving support vessel, and G1200 S-Lay vessel.

In addition, Technip confirms the renewal of the charter for its Skandi Vitoria vessel in Brazil and the expansion of its contracted work outside backlog also through a large contract.

“It is also a testament to our team’s ability to adapt to the challenging market environment, and to provide solutions that still enable field developments. We very much look forward to working with Mellitah to safely and successfully deliver this large project, by leveraging our strong know-how and experience in high-quality product manufacturing and subsea installation,” said Thierry Pilenko, chairman and CEO, Technip.
