Technip was awarded a full EPIC(1) contract by RWE Dea, for the Clipper South gas field development in the North Sea. The field is located 70 kilometers North-east of the Bacton gas terminal in 25 meters of water.
The contract covers full project management, detailed pipeline design, installation and tie-in of a 15.5 kilometer 12″ production line and 3″ methanol piggyback line from the new Clipper South platform to the existing LOGGS (Lincolnshire Offshore Gas Gathering system) platform.
The contract builds on past experience with RWE: in 2008 Technip provided pipelay and umbilical installation for the Topaz field development, located in the Southern gas basin.
Technip’s operating center in Aberdeen (Scotland) will execute this contract, which is scheduled to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2011. Genesis – a Technip Group company providing upstream oil and gas consultancy services – will also play a part in executing the contract through the provision of detailed pipeline design. Vessels from the Technip fleet will be used for the offshore installation campaign.
