Technip awarded FEED contract for the Liuhua fields in the South China Sea
Technip and its consortium partner Chinese Offshore Oil Engineering Company (COOEC) have been awarded a front end engineering design (FEED) contract by CNOOC Limited for two tension leg platforms(1) (TLPs) for the Liuhua 11-1 and 16-2 joint development project located in the South China Sea.
As key technical partner to COOEC, Technip will carry out the FEED work of China’s first two TLPs.
The contract covers the design and engineering of the topsides (including two drilling rigs), hulls, mooring and riser systems. It is expected to be completed by the end of 2015.
Technip's operating center in Houston, Texas, USA, will execute the FEED contract.
Deanna Goodwin, President of Technip in North America, stated: “We are very proud to have earned the confidence of our client CNOOC and partner COOEC. We are looking forward to developing a strong long-lasting collaboration with both of them on this exciting key project.”
