Technip awarded contract offshore Sarawak

PARIS — Technip has been awarded a subsea contract by JX Nippon Oil and Gas Exploration (Malaysia) Ltd. for Layang field, Block SK10, offshore Sarawak, Malaysia. The field has a water depth of 85 m.

The contract covers the engineering, procurement, fabrication, installation and commissioning of three flexible pipes totaling 9.9 km. The flexible pipes consist of two production risers and flowlines and one gas export riser and flowline, connecting shallow water platforms to a new FPSO.

The group will leverage its unique subsea integrated approach, as Technip’s operating center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, will execute the contract, while the flexible flowlines will be produced in Asiaflex Products, Technip’s manufacturing facility in Tanjung Langsat, Johor, Malaysia.

The installation campaign will use the group’s multipurpose vessel, the Deep Orient, and the project is scheduled to be completed in the second half of 2016.
