Technip inks Ghana offshore contracts

Technip has been awarded two subsea contracts by Tullow Ghana Limited for the ultra-deepwater TEN project, located offshore Ghana.

The two contracts, which have a combined value of approximately $1.23 billion, call for the engineering, fabrication, and installation of nine flexible risers, three flexible flowlines, and 12 flexible spools totalling 48km; engineering, fabrication, and installation of 33km of water injection and gas injection rigid flowlines: installation of about 63km of static and dynamic umbilicals; and engineering, pre-fabrication, final assembly, and installation of 10 well rigid jumpers and delivery of six prefabricated rigid jumpers.

Technip leads a consortium with Subsea 7 at the TEN project, which is located in the Deepwater Tano Contract Area, 60km off the coast of Ghana and approximately 30km west of the Tullow Operated Jubilee Field.

Frédéric Delormel, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Subsea, declared: "While the oil and gas market is rapidly growing in Ghana, we are proud to continue to contribute to the development of this country. Today, this new award demonstrates our ability to mobilize worldwide resources to bring strong know-how and technological innovation meeting the challenges of projects in ultra-deepwater."

Jean-Marc Aubry, Senior Vice President, Technip's Region A stated: "We have been operating in Ghana for over four years, when we were awarded the Jubilee project, the first deep water field ever developed in this country. These new awards correspond to a significant milestone for our presence in Ghana."

The offshore installation is scheduled to be completed in the second half of 2016.
