PARIS -- Tullow Ghana has awarded Technip two lumpsum contracts for the Jubilee field, offshore Ghana.

The first contract comprises the engineering and fabrication of seven, 10-in. (25-cm) diameter and two, 8-in. (20-cm) diameter risers totaling 27 km (17 mi) in length. Engineering will be carried out by Technip’s operating center in Paris, France. The risers will be fabricated in Le Trait, France, in one of Technip’s flexible pipe production facilities. Delivery is scheduled for the beginning of next year.

The second contract covers engineering, fabrication, and installation of approximately 48 km (30 mi) of production and gas and water injection rigid flowlines; installation of 26 km (16 mi) of umbilicals, nine flexible risers, and subsea manifold and riser base structures. The contract also covers connection of the flowlines to the wellheads and subsea manifolds, and testing of the entire system.

Technip’s operating center in Houston, Texas, will execute the contract with support from the company’s Paris center for the installation of flexible flowlines, connections, and offshore operations. The offshore campaign is scheduled to begin in early 2010. Technip’s Deep Blue will lay rigid flowlines, while the Deep Pioneer will lay flexible flowlines.
