April 16, 2015

Technip and its consortium partner Chinese  Offshore Oil Engineering Company (COOEC) have been awarded a front end  engineering design (FEED) contract by CNOOC Limited for two tension  leg platforms(1) (TLPs) for the Liuhua 11-1 and 16-2 joint  development project located in the South China Sea.

As key technical partner to COOEC, Technip  will carry out the FEED work of China’s first two TLPs.  

The contract covers the design and  engineering of the topsides (including two drilling rigs), hulls, mooring and  riser systems. It is expected to be completed by the end of 2015.

Technip's operating center in Houston,  Texas, USA, will execute the FEED contract.

Deanna Goodwin, President of Technip in North  America, stated: “We are very proud to have  earned the confidence of our client CNOOC and partner COOEC. We are looking  forward to developing a strong long-lasting collaboration with both of them on  this exciting key project.”
