UTEC Gets Moho Nord Survey Contract from Technip

UTEC, an Acteon company, has announced the award of the full survey services contract on the upcoming Technip Moho Nord EPIC project in West Africa.

The project, operated by Total E&P Congo, is located approximately 75 kilometers off the coast of the Republic of the Congo, at water depths ranging from 650 to 1,100 meters.

 

The contract covers all survey services required on multiple vessel assets during the installation of:

•        230 kilometers of rigid pipelines,

•        23 kilometers of flexible pipes,

•        50 kilometers of umbilicals,

•        50 subsea structures as well as various other structures and rigid jumpers.

The offshore campaign will be spread over 2015 and 2016, with the primary installation vessels being the G1200, a rigid pipe S-lay and heavy-lift construction vessel, and the Deep Pioneer, a multi-purpose deep-water vessel.

The project will see the installation of a subsea positioning network of more than 100 acoustic transponders allowing positioning of multiple vessels and ROV’s, often working simultaneously in the field, covering tasks including pipeline touch down monitoring, subsea asset positioning and jumper metrology, UTEC informed.

UTEC will manage the project between its EMEA regional headquarters in Aberdeen and its newly opened branch office in Pointe Noire, working closely with Technip’s operating center in Paris.

Kevin McBarron, Director of Business Development EMEA commented: “This major contract award confirms Technip’s confidence in UTEC’s track record on large and complex EPIC projects and follows on from the success on both Jubilee & Jubilee Phase 1A projects in Ghana. It also confirms our strategic commitment to Africa.”

Martin O’Carroll, UTEC CEO, added: “This significant project award supports UTEC’s team approach to our clients by consistently delivering the highest quality services, safely and effectively. Technip is a valued partner and we look forward to delivering another successful project together.”
