Technip: reinforcing its footprint in Angola

Technip’s wholly-owned subsidiaries Technip Umbilicals Ltd. and Angoflex Ltda. have been awarded a contract by ENI S.p.A. to supply umbilicals to the Block 15/06 East Hub Development offshore Angola.

This field is located approximately 350 km north of Luanda, at water depths of 450 - 600 m. The contract covers project management and manufacture of about 15 km of dynamic and static steel tube umbilicals.

Technip Umbilicals’ facility in Lobito, Angola, with support from Technip Umbilicals in Newcastle, UK, will manufacture the umbilicals that are scheduled to be completed in 2H16. This project follows on Technip Umbilicals’ successful completion of many deepwater West African projects seen in recent years.

Comments on the award

Sarah Cridland, Managing Director of Technip Umbilicals, said: “This award of Block 15/06 East Hub Development is a recognition of the quality and performance of the umbilicals provided by Technip. We are proud to be awarded this contract and will utilise our expertise across multiple Technip Umbilicals sites whilst strengthening our relationship with ENI.”

Reinforcing Technip’s relationship with ENI, this new contract follows another project awarded to Technip last year for the fabrication and installation of flexible and rigid pipelines at Block 15/06.
