Technip has announced that the Marine Well Containment Company (MWCC) has awarded it a contract for the design, procurement and fabrication of the umbilical, riser and flowline components of MWCC’s expanded well containment response system for the US Gulf of Mexico, set for completion in 2012.
Technip’s scope of work includes two deepwater riser systems for operation in water depths up to 10,000ft (3,000m) utilizing buoyancy elements, connection systems and flexible jumpers; and two shallow water systems for water depths up to 2,000ft (600m) utilizing a lazy wave catenary configuration and one control umbilical.
This project will be executed by Technip’s operating center in Houston, Texas, with specialist support from other Group centers. The flexible pipes will be manufactured at Technip’s plant in Le Trait, France, and the umbilical will be fabricated at the Group’s wholly owned subsidiary, Duco Inc., based in Channelview, Texas.
