TechnipFMC Sends Umbilicals to Total and Shell

TechnipFMC has shipped water injection umbilicals from its Newcastle manufacturing facility to Total in Africa for the Egina project.

The long length umbilicals will be installed at a water depth of 1,600 meters some 130 kilometers off the coast of Nigeria.

The ultra-deep offshore development plan includes 44 wells connected using umbilicals and risers to a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel with a storage capacity of 2.3 million barrels.

Total expects first oil in 2018, with output reaching 200,000 barrels of oil per day.

In addition, the company has completed load out of thermoplastic hose Shell Prelude umbilicals which left Newcastle for North West Australia.

Shell’s Prelude floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility recently left the Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard in South Korea for its final destination 475 kilometers north-north east of Broome, Western Australia. On arrival pre-installed mooring chains will be lifted from the seabed and secured to the facility. Once secure, the hook-up and commissioning process will begin, which is expected to take between 9-12 months.
