The work is expected to be completed by the end of 2015
Deanna Goodwin, president of Technip in North America, said: “We are very proud to have earned the confidence of our client CNOOC Ltd. and partner COOEC. We are looking forward to developing a strong long-lasting collaboration with both of them on this exciting key project.”
