Technip has won a contract from Qatar Petroleum for the engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning of a bridge linked living quarters platform and a utility platform.
The project location is within Qatar Petroleum offshore facilities.
Technip will be responsible for the execution of the entire project. The topsides for both platforms will be installed using Technip's floatover technology.
Technip’s operating center in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, with the support from the group’s operating centers in Paris, France and Doha, Qatar will execute the project.
Qatar Petroleum operates the offshore Maydan Mahzam and Bul Hanine oil fields, which began production in 1965 and 1972, respectively, via the PS-2 and PS-3 production facilities.
Oil from both fields is piped to and processed at Halul Island. Qatar Petroleum has said it is working on a redevelopment concept for Bul Hanine, which would lead to an increase in production by 2018. It was also carrying out studies of the Maydan Mahzam reservoirs.
Qatar Petroleum also has a joint venture agreement with ExxonMobil to develop the Barzan Gas Project, a three-jacket facility expected to start up in Q3 2014.
Crude oil from three other offshore fields, operated by Qatar Petroleum joint venture partners on a production sharing arrangement, is also processed, stored and exported at Halul Island.
Occidental Petroleum of Qatar Ltd (OPQL) operates PS-1 (Idd El-Shargi Field, North and South Domes), TOTAL Exploration & Production-Qatar (TEPQ) operates Al-Khalij field, and Qatar Petroleum Development-Japan (QPD) operates Al-Karkara and A-Structure Fields.
