Technip awarded flexible supply contract for Fletcher Finucane development in Australia

March 05, 2012

Technip was awarded, by Santos Limited, a flexible pipe supply contract for the Fletcher Finucane oil field development, in Western Australia. The field is located in the Carnarvon Basin, offshore North Western Australia, at a water depth of 160 meters.

The contract, which includes project management, engineering and the supply of 31 kilometers of 10.2” and 9” production flowlines*, along with 22 kilometers of 3” service lines, will start in April 2012, with delivery planned for the second semester of 2012.

This award constitutes an important milestone for Technip, as it will be the largest contract awarded to date to its flexible pipe plant, Asiaflex Products, in Tanjung Langsat, Malaysia, since the plant started operation in 2010. Totaling more than 50 kilometers of pipes, this contract solidifies the position of Technip as the primary supplier of flexible pipes in Asia Pacific.

Technip’s operating centre in Perth (Australia), one of its centers of excellence for flexible product design, will carry out the project management and engineering.



* Flowline: a pipe, laid on the seabed, which allows the transportation of oil/gas production or injection of fluids. Its length can vary from a few hundred meters to several kilometers.
