Technip Awarded GofM Subsea Contract

November 12, 2012

Technip wins a lump sum contract for development of subsea infrastructure for the Cardamom field located in the Gulf of Mexico, Garden Banks block 427.

The field is at a water depth of approximately 830 meters, and the project consists of a subsea tie-back to the Auger tension leg platform, wholly owned by Shell Offshore Inc.

The contract covers the project management, engineering, fabrication and installation of the East and West Loop 12.8 kilometer pipe-in-pipe flowlines with associated PLETs and steel catenary risers.

Technip's operating center in Houston, Texas will perform the overall project management. The flowlines and risers will be welded at Technip’s spoolbase in Mobile, Alabama.

The offshore installation is expected to be performed in the second semester of 2013 by the Deep Blue, Technip’s deepwater pipelay vessel, and the Pioneer, recently added to the Technip fleet with the acquisition of Global Industries.

The contract follows notably the delivery to Shell of the umbilical systems for the Perdido development (which are the deepest installed umbilicals in the world, at a water depth of approximately 2,950 meters).
