UK-based company, Technip has scored a brownfield subsea contract for Triton, a FPSO vessel operated by Dana Petroleum.
The FPSO, which is located 193km east of Aberdeen at a water depth of approx. 90m, produces oil and gas from Bittern, Guillemot West and North West, Clapham, Pict and Saxon fields.
As part of the scope of work, Technip will install two flexible risers of 9” and 6” measurements, fabricate and install one dynamic umbilical riser, remove and recover assets at the FPSO vessel and carry out any additional installation, repair and maintenance works.
Knut Boe, President of Technip North Sea Canada, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this contract which demonstrates clear collaboration and builds on the work we have already undertaken on Triton. Having successfully completed the initial project in 2014, we are in an ideal position to bring our extensive knowledge and experience of the asset, coupled with our flexible and umbilical expertise, to the next stage of the project.”
Bill Morrice, Managing Director of Technip in the UK, added: “The scope of the 2015 campaign was defined by Dana and its Triton partners, as a result of a successful detailed riser life extension study executed by Technip in the UK late 2014. While Technip closely collaborated with Dana, this study provided the appropriate technical information to allow key decisions to be made and helped shape the 2015 project activity.”
Technip will execute the contract from its operating centre in Aberdeen, Technip Umbilicals will manufacture the umbilical at its plant in Newcastle while the company’s diving support vessel Orelia will undertake the installation campaign.
