Technip awarded an installation contract for the "Ekofisk Va" subsea water injection project at the Ekifisk field in Norway

Technip has been awarded by ConocoPhillips Skandinavia AS a lump sum contract for the Ekofisk VA subsea water injection project located in block 2/4 on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. This contract provides for the installation, tie-in and commissioning of subsea facilities between the existing Ekofisk facilities and a new eight well subsea injection template (2/4VA).

The contract includes:

  • installation engineering;
  • procurement of installation equipment;
  • installation of client provided spools(1), flexible flowlines(2) and umbilicals(3);
  • design, fabrication and installation of protection covers; and
  • tie-in and commissioning.

The detailed design and the other equipment will be provided by ConocoPhillips. Offshore installation is scheduled for 2009.

Installation will be performed by several vessels including Technip’s new-built diving support vessel, the Skandi Arctic.

(1) Spool: short length pipe connecting a subsea pipeline and a riser, or a pipe and a subsea structure.

(2) Flowline: a pipe, laid on the seabed, which allows the transportation of oil/gas production or injection of fluids. Its length can vary from a few hundred meters to several kilometers.

(3) Umbilical: an assembly of hydraulic hoses which can also include electrical cables or optic fibers used to control subsea structures from a platform or a vessel.
