Technip has won an engineering, procurement, installation and construction contract from GDF SUEZ E&P UK Limited for the Juliet project, located 40 kilometres east of the Humberside estuary, at a water depth of approximately 20 to 60 metres.
The contract, which is a tie-back to the Pickerill A platform, will cover the installation of a 12 inch 22-kilometre rigid flowline. It will also include a 22-kilometre static controls umbilical, 12 inch riser, 16 inch J-Tube assembly and a100-tonne manifold.
Technips operating centres in Aberdeen, Scotland and in Oslo, Norway will work in conjunction to deliver this project. The offshore campaign is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2013 and will use vessels from the Technip fleet, including the Apache II and Normand Pioneer.
Knut Boe, senior vice president, Technips North Sea Canada Region, declared: We are delighted to be working with GDF SUEZ to deliver the Juliet development. This project is a great example of the ongoing level of investment in the UK Continental Shelf and the subsea opportunities that are arising as result.
Furthermore, this project will see our Aberdeen and Oslo-based teams work very closely. It demonstrates Technip's strength as an international company sharing expertise and resources across national boundaries and it also confirms our position as a leading contractor in the North Sea area.
