January 14, 2011

Technip was awarded a contract by Chevron North America Exploration and Production for the development of the Jack & St-Malo fields, located in the Walker Ridge area of the Gulf of Mexico at a water depth of approximately 7,000 feet (2,100 meters).

The contract covers the engineering, fabrication and subsea installation of more than 53 miles (85 kilometers) of 10.75” outer diameter of flowlines(1), steel catenary risers(2), pipeline end terminations, manifolds, pump stations and tie-in skids.

Technip's operating center in Houston, Texas will perform the overall project management. The flowlines and risers will be welded at the Group’s spoolbase in Mobile, Alabama. Offshore installation is scheduled to be completed by the Deep Blue, Technip’s deepwater pipelay vessel, in 2013.

This award reinforces Technip’s leading position in the Gulf of Mexico ultra deep water market.
