PARIS -- Anadarko has awarded Technip two lumpsum contracts for the Caesar/Tonga oil field development in the Gulf of Mexico. This field is located 190 mi (300 km) from New Orleans in Green Canyon blocks 683, 726, 727, and 770 in water depths of around 1,500 m (5,100 ft). The field will be tied back to the Constitution spar platform.

The first contract covers the design, supply, and installation of the components for four pipe-in-pipe flowlines totaling 27 mi (43 km). It also includes the design, fabrication, and installation of eight pipeline end terminations (PLETs). This development will use the pipe-in-pipe technology, which provides insulation and flow assurance for effective production in deep and ultra deepwater. Technip’s operating center in Houston, Texas will execute the contract. The pipe-in-pipe flowlines will be welded and assembled at the Group’s spoolbase located in Mobile, Alabama. Offshore installation will be carried out with the deepwater pipelay vessel Deep Blue.

The second contract covers the project management, engineering, and fabrication of two control umbilicals and associated termination hardware. This contract, which is scheduled to be completed in 3Q 2010, will be executed by Duco, Technip’s wholly-owned subsidiary in Houston. The umbilicals will be manufactured at the group’s plant in Channelview, Texas.
