Chevron awarded Technip a lump sum project for the decommissioning of the brownfield development and installation of new subsea equipment supporting a floating production system located in Mississippi Canyon, Gulf of Mexico, in a water depth of approximately 2000m.

Deep Blue. From Technip.

Technip will provide project management and engineering; decommissioning of existing equipment including manifold, jumpers and flying leads; fabrication and installation of 8.8km of steel lazy wave riser, flowline and pipeline end terminations; installation of 8.8km gas lift umbilical, replacement manifold and associated hardware; fabrication and installation of manifold foundation and seven jumpers; and precommissioning and testing.

Technip's operating center in Houston, Texas, will perform the overall project management. The infield flowline and riser will be welded at the Group’s spoolbase in Mobile, Alabama.

The offshore installation is expected to be performed in 2H 2016 by vessels from Technip’s fleet. The Deep Blue, one of the world's largest ultra deepwater pipelay and subsea construction vessel will install the steel lazy wave riser, flowline, and gas lift umbilical, and the Global 1200, will install the manifold and foundation.
