Technip was awarded a lump sum contract by Enbridge Offshore Facilities L.L.C. (Enbridge) for the development of the Walker Ridge gas gathering system in the Gulf of Mexico, at a water depth of 7,000 feet (2,130 meters).
This award reinforces Technip’s leading position in the Gulf of Mexico ultra deep water market. It covers the engineering, fabrication and installation of 160 miles (270 kilometers) of steel catenary risers* and pipelines as well as the installation of subsea equipments.
Technip's operating center in Houston, Texas will perform the overall project management. The export pipelines and risers will be welded at the Group’s spoolbase located in Mobile, Alabama. Offshore installation is scheduled to be completed with the Deep Blue, Technip’s deepwater pipelay vessel, in 2013.
