Technip awarded a contract for the Gjøa field in Norway

Technip was awarded by GDF SUEZ an engineering, procurement, construction and installation contract, worth approximately €45 million, for the Gjøa field development located in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.

This contract covers:

  • engineering and fabrication of two smoothbore gas export risers* to connect the Gjøa platform with the gas export pipeline,
  • removal of the existing roughbore risers and installation of the two new smoothbore risers,
  • tie-ins and pre-commissioning activities.

Technip’s operating center in Oslo, Norway will execute the contract. Fabrication of the risers will take place in the Group’s flexible pipe plant in Le Trait, France. Offshore installation, which will be executed with notably the Skandi Arctic, a vessel from Technip fleet, is scheduled to be completed in the second half of 2011.
