France’s Technip has been awarded an engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning contract by Malaysia’s Petronas.
The work is for the D18 project offshore Sarawak, Malaysia, and covers the procurement and installation of two 8” water injection flexible pipes totalling 9.5km. The pipes will connect three fixed jacket platforms which form the existing infrastructure.
KK Lim, president of Technip Asia Pacific, commented: “This is the first work order awarded under the 5-year framework agreement signed with Petronas. We are pleased to be able to leverage our unique subsea vertical integration of product design, manufacturing and installation vessel to offer a cost effective solution to our client by using flexible pipe technology.”
Technip’s flexible pipe manufacturing plant located in Malaysia will execute the contract with subsea construction vessel Deep Orient (built 2012) to be utilised for installation. The project is scheduled for completion in late 2015.
