Technip-Coflexip wins contract for White Rose subsea production systemNews // September 12, 2002
The contract, worth 165 million Euros, represents a significant milestone for the Newfoundland offshore industry as this will be the first time that the project management and engineering for a subsea development of this size has been performed entirelyin the region.
The contract includes the design, supply and installation of the White Rose Subsea Production System, incorporating the flexible riser system, in-field flexible flowlines, dynamic and static umbilicals, subsea manifolds, trees and subsea control system.
The project requires a total of 42km of flexible risers, flowlines and umbilicals, five subsea manifolds and between 15 and 21 Christmas trees and wellheads distributed across three drill centre Glory Holes. The contract also contains an option for Technip CSO Canada to carry out the installation of the mooring system for the White Rose FPSO (Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading unit). The trees, wellheads and control system will be supplied under a major subcontract with the Cooper Cameron Corporation.
Fabrication of the flowlines and risers will be undertaken at Technip-Coflexip's flexible pipemanufacturing facility in Le Trait, France, with the umbilical supply being subcontracted to its wholly owned subsidiary Duco in Newcastle, UK.
Technip-Coflexip's vessels CSO Constructor and CSO Marianos will execute the installation part of this integrated contract in the summer of 2004. Throughout the project, a management and engineering team located in St John's Newfoundland and comprising both Technip CSO Canada and Cooper Cameron personnel, will control the operations of both the Technip-Coflexip and Cooper Cameron sites.
