Technip Bags EPIC Subsea Contract for GSA Development (UK)

Technip Bags EPIC Subsea Contract Ithaca's GSA Development (UK)

Technip was awarded by Ithaca Energy (UK) Ltd an EPIC subsea contract for the Greater Stella Area (GSA) development, located 280 kilometers East-Southeast of Aberdeen, Scotland at a water depth of approximately 90 meters.

Ithaca Energy (UK) Ltd is developing the GSA, centred on the Stella and Harrier fields as a stand-alone development utilizing its own floating production vessel.

The contract covers:

– Detailed design and pipelay of a 33 kilometre 10” oil export and 63 kilometer 10” gas export pipeline to the production platform,

– Various subsea works to the Stella main drill center and North drill center including;

– Installation of manifolds, tee structures, flexible pipelay and spoolpiece components,

– Installation of the mooring system to the production platform and design and installation of five-slot mid water arch.

Technip’s operating center in Aberdeen will execute the contract, which is scheduled to be completed in the second half of 2013. Genesis, Technip’s consultancy subsea and offshore engineering company, will complete the detailed design workscope and flexible flowlines will be manufactured at Technip’s flexible pipe plant in Le Trait, France. Meanwhile, Technip’s Evanton Spoolbase, near Inverness, Scotland will fabricate the linepipe and DUCO, the Group’s umbilical manufacturer in Newcastle, England will provide the umbilicals. Vessels from the Technip fleet will be used for the offshore campaign, including the Skandi Arctic and the Wellservicer.

Bill Morrice, Managing Director of Technip in the UK said: “Ithaca Energy (UK) is a new client for Technip and we are delighted to have been awarded this significant contract to help them develop the GSA. The UK North Sea is still an exciting place to be, with opportunities in all areas including the Inspection, Repair and Maintenance (IRM) and West of Shetland markets. This particular award is evidence of the high level of activity around traditional developments and we look forward to supporting Ithaca Energy (UK) to bring the GSA hub onstream.”

66kV Offshore Wind 2015

The only networking event on 66kV array grids.

66kV Offshore Wind is a technical event for experts in the wind industry. The goal is to provide a clear path to commercial implementation of 66kV array grids. By exploring developer requirements, WTG capabilities and equipment certification, we hope to reduce both uncertainty and time to implementation for 66kV offshore wind.

The conference aims to:

  • Evaluate project requirements to select 66kV inter-arrays
  • Explore turbine requirements for use in 66kV systems
  • Review certification procedures for higher voltage equipment
  • Evaluate the technology and cost impacts on transformers, cables and switchgears
  • Understand the need for reactive power compensation in offshore substations
