Technip, in a consortium with National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC), was awarded by Zakum Development Company (ZADCO) a lump sum engineering, procurement, fabrication, installation, commissioning and start-up contract for the Upper Zakum 750K Project in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

The scope of work covers:

– 240 kilometers of subsea pipelines ranging from 6” to 42”,

– 128 kilometers of subsea composite and fiber-optic cables,

– Almost 30,000 tons of offshore structures (jackets, riser platforms, flare towers and bridges), including approximately 3,000 tons of islands modules and bridges.

The contract also includes the complete initial production facilities for temporary wells hook up to serve initial production distributed amongst the North, South and Central islands.

Technip’s operating center in Abu Dhabi will execute the overall engineering and participate in procurement, on-island works, cable installation and initial production. The project is scheduled to be completed in the third quarter of 2015.

This award reinforces Technip’s continuous involvement in major offshore projects and its successful long-established association with NPCC in the UAE.
