Subsea Engineering New Middle–East Contract Strengthens Technip’s Subsea Business
Technip joins offshore project in Dubai: The engineering experts will work on the development of the Jalilah B field off the coast of the UAE. The deal includes a complete offshore rig as well as pipelines.
Paris/France – The contract with Dubai Petroleum Establishment covers the construction and installation of the Jalilah B platform, a 900-ton deck, a 500-ton jacket, as well as 13 new risers on existing platforms. It also includes the installation of 110 kilometers of pipelines ranging from 6 to 24 inches in diameter. The project will see the deployment of three specialized offshore construction ships, including the Global 1201, one of the group’s largest heavy lift and pipelay vessels.
The Jalilah B field is located nearly 90 kilometers offshore Dubai (United Arab Emirates, UAE), at water depth reaching 60 meters. Technip’s operating center in Abu Dhabi will execute this fast-track project, scheduled for completion in the second half of 2014.
Vaseem Khan, Senior Vice President of Technip in the Middle East, stated: "We are delighted to be awarded this new project, a few months after the successful completion of our first subsea project in the Middle East for DPE, for the South West Fateh and Falah fields. Technip can build on its differentiating assets, such as the G1201, gained from the acquisition of Global Industries in 2011."
