Endeavour Energy UK Ltd, a subsidiary of Endeavour International Corporation, awarded Technip an EPCI lump sum contract, worth around €70 million, for the East Rochelle development in the United Kingdom North Sea. The field is located approximately 185 kilometers north-east of Aberdeen, Scotland in 140 meters of water.
The contract covers full project management and detailed design, fabrication, installation and pre-commissioning of 30 kilometers of pipe-in-pipe, flexible riser, free issue umbilical, subsea isolation valves and manifolds. It also covers tie-in spools, trenching, backfill and rockdumping work.
Technip’s operating center in Aberdeen will execute this contract. The pipe-in-pipe will be welded at Technip’s spoolbase in Evanton, Scotland, while the flexible riser will be manufactured at the Group’s flexible pipe plant in Le Trait, France. The offshore installation campaign is scheduled to be completed during the second half of 2012 and will use vessels from the Technip fleet.
