PARIS – Lundin Petroleum has awarded Technip a €100-million ($135-million) lump-sum contract for work on the Brynhild (ex-Nymo) field development project.

Development comprises three wells tied back to the Shell Pierce FPSO in UK waters. The 37-km (23-mi) tieback will involve use of Technip technology for the reeled pipe-in-pipe production and plastic-lined water injection flowlines.

The contract also includes supply of spools, tie-ins, trenching and protection of the flowlines, and installation of subsea structures and the control umbilical.

Technip’s operating center in Oslo, Norway, will manage the work, with pipeline welding completed at the group’s spoolbase in Evanton, Scotland.

The Apache II will perform installations in 2013.

Brynhild is in the Norwegian North Sea, close to the boundary with UK waters in a water depth of around 80 m (262 ft).
