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.

Substructures for UK Offshore Wind

Design, construction and installation

Optimising offshore substructures is one of the key challenges for reducing LCOE. Foundation designers have produced a variety of different solutions: monopiles, GBS, jackets, suction buckets and floating foundations. Looking at U.K. projects – different soils, water depths,fabrication timelines and installation challengescreate many questions for the industry to solve. We’re entering uncharted territory; projects arelarger, farther and more complex than ever completed.

Now is the time to have a close look at lessons learnt and define the room for improvement for the U.K. wind industry.
