Technip has been awarded a substantial contract by Dubai Petroleum Establishment (DPE). The contract comprises the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of the Jalilah B field development project, located nearly 90 km offshore Dubai and at a water depth reaching 60 m.
Technip’s scope of work consists of the construction and installation of the Jalilah B platform, a 900 t deck, a 500 t jacket, as well as 13 new risers on existing platforms. It also includes the installation of 110 km of pipelines ranging from 6 to 24 in. in diameter. This contract will use three of Technip’s specialised vessels, including the G1201, one of the Group’s flagship S-Lay installation vessels designed for work in both deep and shallow water.
Technip’s operating centre in Abu Dhabi will execute the project, which is scheduled for completion in the second half of 2014.
Vaseem Khan, Senior Vice President of Technip in the Middle East, stated: “We are delighted to be awarded this new project a few months after the successful completion of our first subsea project in the Middle East for DPE, for the South West Fateh and Falah fields. This award reflects our clients’ trust in our capabilities to safely and successfully execute complex projects in one of the most congested fields in the UAE. Technip can build on its differentiating assets, such as the G1202, gained from the acquisition of Global Industries in 2011.”
