(Paris)-Technip has been awarded a contract by BG Trinidad and Tobago for flowlines, risers, and umbilicals for the North Coast Marine Area (NCMA) Development, offshore Trinidad. The monetary value of the contract was not disclosed.


The contract calls for Technip to provide engineering, procurement, fabrication, installation and pre-commissioning services for the insulated riser, flowline and umbilical systems that will link the Eastern Hibiscus and Chaconia subsea wells to the Hibiscus platform. The wells are located 25 mi northwest of Trinidad in NCMA Block 01 in 500 ft of water.


Technip will be responsible for additional engineering, fabrication and installation work on two insulated steel flowlines with two flexible risers and two hydraulic control umbilicals. Technip's operations and engineering center in Houston will perform the detailed design engineering for the project.


Flexi France, one of Technip's flexible pipe plants, will manufacture the high-pressure flexible risers at its Le Trait, France location, while the hydraulic control umbilicals will be manufactured by Technip's UK subsidiary, Duco, in Newcastle, England. The rigid flowline will be fabricated at Technip's poolbase in Evanton, UK.


Technip will employ two vessels from its fleet for the offshore installation. The Apache will lay the flowlines, while The Wellservicer will install the flexible risers and umbilicals and additionally offer diving and ROV support for completion of the work.
