the Gulf of Mexico
PARIS -- October 14, 2013
Technip (Paris:TEC) (ISIN:FR0000131708) (ADR:TKPPY) was awarded by LLOG
Exploration Offshore L.L.C. a substantial^(1) contract for the development of
the Delta House field, located in the Mississippi Canyon area of the US Gulf
This contract covers the project management, engineering, fabrication,
installation and pre-commissioning of more than 200 kilometers of infield and
export flowlines^(2) and risers^(3). The water depth of this development is
comprised between approximately 100 and 2,000 meters (between approximately
360 and 6,500 feet).
Technip's operating center in Houston, Texas will perform the overall project
management. The infield flowlines and risers will be welded at the Group’s
spoolbase in Mobile, Alabama. The offshore installation is expected to be
performed in the second half of 2014 by vessels from Technip’s fleet: the Deep
Blue will lay the deepwater infield lines while the G1200 construction vessel
will install the export flowlines.
Frédéric Delormel, Technip’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating
Officer Subsea, has declared: “This new project reinforces our leadership in
the US Gulf of Mexico deepwater market. It also confirms our positioning in
deep to shallow export lines, following the acquisition of Global Industries.”
