Technip has been awarded by Stone Energy Corporation both a flexible pipe supply contract and an installation contract for the Amethyst field, located on Mississippi Canyon 26, in the Gulf of Mexico.
The first contract includes the detailed engineering, procurement, fabrication, assembly and testing of a 5 in. production static riser (almost 9 km long) as well as all associated hardware.
The second award covers the installation of the pipe as a tieback to the Pompano fixed platform, in approximately 395 m of water depth.
Technip’s operating center in Houston, Texas, USA will manage the project, which is scheduled to be completed during 2H15.
The Group will leverage its unique vertical position in the subsea business. The flexible pipe will be manufactured at the Group’s Asiaflex Products plant located in Tanjung Langsat, Malaysia. It will be installed using the Deep Blue, Technip’s deepwater pipelay vessel.
Deanna Goodwin, President of Technip in North America, stated: “Technip is proud to bring its experience and to leverage its vertical integration of product design and manufacture and installation vessel fleet to support our customer’s needs”.
