Technip awarded contract for the Julia project in Gulf of MexicoNews // June 10, 2013
Technip has been awarded what it described as "substantial" lump-sum contract by Exxon Mobil Corporation for the development of the Julia field. This field is located in the Walker Ridge area of the Gulf of Mexico, at a water depth of approximately 2,100m.
The contract covers the project management, engineering, fabrication, installation and pre-commissioning of more than 48km of 10.75in outer diameter insulated flowlines, steel catenary risers and flowline end terminations.
Technip's operating centre in Houston, Texas will perform the overall project management, with detailed flowline design being completed by Genesis, Technipís wholly-owned subsidiary. The flowlines and risers will be welded at the groupís spoolbase in Mobile, Alabama.
The offshore installation is expected to be completed in 2015 by the Deep Blue, one of Technipís deepwater pipelay vessels.
