Ghana, Reinforcing Its Presence in West Africa
PARIS -- October 31, 2013
Technip (Paris:TEC) (ISIN:FR0000131708) (ADR:TKPPY), leader of a consortium
with Subsea7, has been awarded by Tullow Ghana Limited two contracts for the
TEN Project, located offshore Ghana, at a water depth reaching up to 2,000
meters. Together, those two contracts have a combined value of approximately
USD 1.23 billion, with a Technip share of about USD 730 million.
Technip’s scope of work includes the:
*engineering, fabrication and installation of 9 flexible risers^(1), 3
flexible flowlines^(2) and 12 flexible spools^(3) totaling 48 kilometers;
*engineering, fabrication and installation of 33 kilometers of water
injection and gas injection rigid flowlines;
*installation of about 63 kilometers of static and dynamic umbilicals^(4);
*engineering, pre-fabrication, final assembly and installation of 10 well
rigid jumpers^(5) and delivery of further 6 prefabricated rigid jumpers.
For the benefit of this project in ultra-deep water requiring technical
innovation, Technip has mobilized its worldwide organization combining
together know-how and various areas of expertise. Thus, Technip’s operating
center in Paris, France, will execute this project with the support of the
Group’s offices in Accra, Ghana. The flexible pipes will be fabricated at
Technip’s Flexi France facility in Le Trait, France and the rigid flowlines at
the Group’s spoolbase in Evanton, UK.
The offshore installation is scheduled to be completed in the second half of
The TEN Field is located in the Deepwater Tano Contract Area, 60 kilometers
off the coast of Ghana and approximately 30 kilometers west of the Tullow
Operated Jubilee Field. Tullow Ghana Limited (a subsidiary of Tullow Oil plc)
is Operator of the Deepwater Tano Contract Area with an interest of 47.175%.
Other partner interests are Kosmos Energy (17%), Anadarko Petroleum (17%),
Sabre Oil & Gas Holdings Ltd, a subsidiary of Petro SA (3.825%), and the Ghana

^(1) Riser: a pipe or assembly of pipes used to transfer produced fluids and
or products from the seabed to surface facilities, and transfer injection or
control fluids from the surface facilities to the seabed.
^(2) Spool: short length pipe connecting a subsea pipeline and a riser, or a
pipe and a subsea structure.
^(3) Flowline: a flexible or rigid pipe, laid on the seabed, which allows the
transportation of oil/gas production or injection of fluids. Its length can
vary from a few hundred meters to several kilometers.
^(4) Umbilical: an assembly of steel tubes and/or thermoplastic hoses which
can also include electrical cables or optic fibers used to control subsea
structures from a platform or a vessel.
^(5)Jumper: a short section of pipe for the connection of two subsea
