Technip has been awarded a ‘substantial’ contract for the North Sea Kraken development.
The agreement, which is thought to be worth between €250million and €500million, will see the company cover engineering, procurement, and installation on the project 400 kilometres north-east of Aberdeen.
The group’s spoolbase in Evanton will weld and load-out the rigid pipe while Technip Umbilicals and its subsidiary in Newcastle will manufacture the umbilical. All construction work on the project will be carried out by diverless construction methods.
A number of vessels from the Technip fleet will be utilized for the offshore campaign, including Technip’s Deep Energy, one of the largest pipelay vessels ever built.
Bill Morrice, managing director of Technip in the UK, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this contract which builds upon our excellent relationship with EnQuest.
“Our vast experience in the delivery of efficient, cost-effective solutions for our clients has been recognized once again and we look forward to supporting EnQuest to maximize production from the Kraken field, currently one of the largest developments in the UK North Sea.”
