Technip, as part of a consortium led by National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC), has been awarded a contract by Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (ADMA-OPCO) for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) work on Umm Lulu full field development project – Package 2 (process facilities).
Technip says the scope of work consists of the detailed engineering, procurement, fabrication, offshore installation, commissioning and start-up of a large offshore super complex comprising of six bridge linked platforms including gathering, separation, gas treatment and water disposal facilities, utilities and accommodation modules.
The platforms, totaling over 66,000 metric tons, will be fabricated at NPCC’s yard in Abu Dhabi.
The platforms will be installed by the floatover method developed by Technip, which allows a high proportion of the hook-up and pre-commissioning work to be completed onshore prior to load-out, and thereby significantly reduces both the duration and cost of the offshore commissioning phase.
Technip will be responsible for the engineering of the project and will share the procurement and commissioning works with NPCC. NPCC will be responsible for the fabrication and installation of the facilities. The project is scheduled to be completed in the first half of 2018.
The Umm Lulu field is in the Arabian Gulf, 42Km from Abu Dhabi.
