Technip wins key Dubai contract
Dubai, January 28, 2014
Technip has won a 'substantial contract' from Dubai Petroleum Establishment (DPE) for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of the Jalilah B field development project.
The field is located nearly 90 km offshore Dubai at water depth reaching 60 m.
Technip’s scope of work consists of 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 km of pipelines ranging from
6 to 24 inches in diameter.
This contract will use three of Technip’s specialised vessels, including the G1201, one of the group’s flagship S-Lay installation vessel designed for work in both deep and shallow water, a statement said.
Technip’s operating centre 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. This award reflects our clients’ trust in our capabilities to safely and successfully execute complex projects in one of the most congested fields in the UAE. Technip can build on its differentiating assets, such as the G1201,
gained from the acquisition of Global Industries in 2011."
A “substantial” subsea contract ranges between €100 million ($136.7 million) and €250 million, it said. - TradeArabia News Service
