Technip wins another Dubai subsea contract
Company to install subsea platform in Jalilah B field
Technip has been awarded a "substantial" (between $136m-$340m) contract to build and install a new subsea platform for Dubai Petroleum Establishment.
The Jalilah B Platform will be installed around 90km off the coast of Dubai at a depth of around 60m. The platform will consist of a 900-ton deck, a 500-ton hacket and 13 new risers on existing platforms. The company said that it also involves the installation of around 110km of new pipelines.
Technip said that its operating centre in Abu Dhabi will handle the work, which is being completed on a fast-track basis and will finish in the second half of this year. It added that it would use three specialist vessels to carry out the work, including an installation vessell designed to work in both deep and shallow waters.
Vaseem Khan, senior vice-president of Technip in the Middle East, said: "We are delighted to be awarded this new project, a few months after the successful completion of our first subsea project in the Middle East for DPE, for the South West Fateh and Falah fields.
"This award reflects our clients’ trust in our capabilities to safely and successfully execute complex projects in one of the most congested fields in the UAE."
