PARIS, FRANCE: Technip was awarded by Shell UK Limited, engineering, procurement, installation and construction contract for the Gannet F Reinstatement project, located in the North Sea, 180 kilometre east of Aberdeen, at a water depth of 95 metre. The contract concerns the replacement of the Gannet F flowline at the Gannet Alpha Platform and covers the fabrication and pipelay of an 11.8 kilometre pipe-in-pipe, installation of a 4.5” gas lift pipeline, trenching and installation of an 11.9 kilometre umbilical.

Technip’s operating centre in Aberdeen, Scotland will execute the contract, which is scheduled to be completed in the second semester of 2013. The Group’s spoolbase in Evanton, Scotland, will fabricate the pipe-in-pipe and DUCO Limited, Technip’s wholly-owned subsidiary in Newcastle, England, will manufacture the umbilical. Technip’s pipelay vessel, Apache II, will be used for the offshore campaign.

“We are delighted to have been awarded this contract which strengthens our relationship with Shell UK Limited. Our vast experience in providing cost-effective and efficient pipe-in-pipe solutions for our clients will help us execute this project safely and effectively. We look forward to supporting Shell to maximize production from the Gannet field,” said Bill Morrice, Managing Director, Technip UK.
