Technip has been awarded a lump sum contract by Marathon Oil Company for the Ozona field development in the Gulf of Mexico. The project consists of the tie-in of a well in Garden Banks 515 (1,000m water depth) to the Shell Auger platform. The contract covers project management and surveys, engineering, procurement/fabrication and installation of a 9km-long pipe-in-pipe flowline, two PLETs, an anchor pile and a rigid jumper and installation of a 12km-long umbilical. Technip’s operating center in Houston, Texas will execute this contract. The flowline will be welded at the group’s Spoolbase located in Mobile, Alabama. Offshore installation is scheduled to be completed by the Deep Blue, Technip’s deepwater pipelay vessel, in the second quarter of 2010.
