Technip has received a major contract to develop the Bahr Essalam, Phase II development in the Central Mediterranean Sea.
This natural gas field development is operated by Mellitah Oil & Gas B.V. Libyan Branch.
The overall scope of work will see Technip perform the design, detailed engineering and deliver the project management, as well as procurement, installation, tie-ins, pre-commissioning and commissioning. This will be associated with the provision of a gas gathering system, comprised of production pipelines, subsea isolation valve (SSIV), umbilicals, as well as extensive diving and installation campaigns. It will also include modifications to the Sabratha platform regarding the topsides. All offshore mobilisations will be undertaken from Malta.
Thierry Pilenko, Chairman and CEO, commented: “We are proud of this contract award, which is a strong recognition of Technip’s broad capabilities across a variety of areas. It is also testament to our team’s ability to adapt to the challenging market environment, and to provide solutions that still enable field developments. We very much look forward to working with Mellitah to safely and successfully deliver this large project, by leveraging our strong know-how and experience in high-quality product manufacturing and subsea installation.”
In addition, Technip confirms the renewal of the charter for its Skandi Vitoria vessel in Brazil and the expansion of its contracted work outside backlog also through a large contract.
Offshore installation is scheduled for 2H17 through to 2H18.
