Offshore Engineering Technip to Provide Engineering for Gulf of Mexico Offshore Project
Offshore engineering specialists Technip will provide project management and engineering for Deep Gulf Energy’s Odd Job field offshore New Orleans.
Houston, Texas/USA – Odd Job is an ultra deepwater field, located in Mississippi Canyon in the Gulf of Mexico, in water depths ranging from 1,330 to 1,825 meters. During the contract, Technip will build and install approximately 23 kilometers of pipe-in-pipe flowline as well as 2 kilometers of Steel Catenary Riser (SCR) and auxiliary installations. The French based company will further overlook the pre-commissioning for both flowline and SCR system.
Deanna Goodwin, President of Technip in North America commented: “Technip is delighted to continue its strong long-lasting relationship with Deep Gulf Energy and to bring and share its unique experience to this new project.” Technip's operating center in Houston, Texas, USA, will manage the overall project. The SCR and flowline system will be fabricated at the Group’s spoolbase in Mobile, Alabama, USA. The offshore installation is expected to be performed in the summer of 2016 by Technip’s vessel the Deep Blue, one of the world's largest ultra-deepwater pipelay and subsea construction vessel.
