Technip awarded pipeline EPIC by Dubai Petroleum
French firm to replace lines at South West Fatah and Falah fields
French sub-sea EPIC specialist engineering firm Technip has been awarded a contract covering the South West Fatah and Falah fields, 90km offshore Dubai.
The EPIC award by the Emirate’s state-run Dubai Petroleum, includes the replacement of a 12” gas pipeline and six 18” water injection pipelines in 53 metres of water. The contract sum was undisclosed.
Technip said its G1201 S-Lay installation vessel would be used for pipelaying, as well as a diving support vessel.
The work will be carried out by Technip’s operating centre in Abu Dhabi and is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2012.
Arturo Grimaldi, Senior Vice President of Technip in the Middle-East, declared: “This contract is a significant milestone for Technip in the Middle East. It confirms our entry into the promising subsea business in the region, where we were traditionally focused on the onshore and offshore markets, thanks notably to positions and assets gained from the acquisition of Global Industries in 2011.”
