    Coflexip Stena Offshore (CSO) says one of its subsidiaries in the Gulf of Mexico, Coflexip Stena Offshore Inc, has been an EPIC contract for the design, procurement, installation and commissioning of the export pipelines from the Boomvang and Nansen field developments, which are located in 1,100m of water in the East Breaks block in the Gulf of Mexico.

    The contract, awarded by Williams Field Services, comprises project management, engineering and installation of more than 100 miles of rigid pipeline and steel catenary risers (SCRs), with diameters ranging from 12" to 18", and tie-in to the fields SPARplatforms using SCRs. CSO will also install all the subsea structures associated. Installation is scheduled to take place in the second half of 2001.

    Pipeline system design is being carried out by RJ Brown Deepwater in Houston. The project will, as expected, also utilise CSO's new deepwater pipelay and subsea construction vessel, the CSO Deep Blue.
