Technip Will Perform Turnkey Contract for Qatar Petroleum’s FMB Offshore
PARIS -- October 21, 2013
Technip (Paris:TEC) (ISIN:FR0000131708) (ADR:TKPPY) was awarded by Qatar
Petroleum an engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning contract
for a strategically important* Offshore Project comprising a living quarter
platform and an utility platform, with a bridge connecting the two platforms.
The project location is within QP offshore facilities.
Technip will be responsible for the execution of the entire Project. The
topsides for both platforms will be installed using the floatover technology,
which Technip pioneered. This installation method enables large integrated
topsides to be installed, thereby minimizing offshore hook-up and
commissioning, without the use of large crane vessels.
Technip’s operating center in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, with the
support from the Group’s operating centers in Paris, France and Doha, Qatar
will execute the project.
Vaseem Khan, Senior Vice President of Technip in the Middle East, declared:
“This contract reflects the growing interest for the floatover technology, by
allowing a safe project execution in a time and cost-effective way while
overcoming heavy-lift challenges. With this strategic project, we have the
opportunity to further consolidate our presence in Qatar and to strengthen our
relationship with Qatar Petroleum. It will also help us establish Technip as a
leading Company in the region for executing offshore living quarter platform
