Technip awarded pipe lay contract in GhanaProjects and Operations // October 29, 2010
Technip has been awarded a lump sum contract for phase 1 of the Natural Gas Transportation and Processing project by GNPC. The project will take place 60km offshore Ghana.
The contract covers the engineering, welding and installation of a 14km rigid steel flowline as well as the engineering, fabrication and installation of one PLET.
The flowline will constitute the deep water section of a pipeline which will be used to pipe natural gas from the Jubilee field to the future onshore processing plant.
The contract will be executed by the Group’s operating centre in Paris, France. The flowline will be welded at Technip’s spoolbase in Mobile, Alabama. Installation operations are scheduled to start at the end of 2010. This will be carried out by Apache II, Technip’s new pipelay vessel.
