PARIS -- ENI US Operating has awarded Technip a lump-sum contract to tieback the Appaloosa well to the Corral platform in the Gulf of Mexico.

The contract covers project management and surveys; engineering, fabrication, and installation of a 21-mi long (34-km) production flowline, a riser, and subsea equipment; installation of free-issued umbilical and flying leads; and pre-commissioning and dewatering of the flowline.

Technip’s operating center in Texas will execute the contract. The group’s spoolbase in Alabama will weld the flowline and riser.

Offshore installation is scheduled for the fourth quarter using Technip’s deepwater pipelay vessel Deep Blue. The construction vessel Deep Pioneer will install the umbilicals with the Skandi Achiever conducting diving work.
