Technip has been awarded a lump-sum contract by Deep Gulf Energy II, LLC for the development of Odd Job field. This ultra-deepwater field is located in Mississippi Canyon, offshore New Orleans, in the Gulf of Mexico, in water depths ranging from 1,330 m to 1,825 m.

The contract consists of:

  • Project management and engineering services  
  • Fabrication and installation of approximately 23 km of pipe-in-pipe flowline   
  • Fabrication and installation of approximately 2 km of steel catenary riser (SCR)
  • Design, fabrication and installation of in-line sled, flowline end termination
  • Fabrication of jumper
  • Pre-commissioning for the flowline and SCR system.

Technip's operating center in Houston, Texas, will manage the overall project. The SCR and flowline system will be fabricated at the company’s spoolbase in Mobile, Alabama. The offshore installation is expected to be performed in the summer of 2016 by Technip’s vessel the Deep Blue, one of the world's largest ultra-deepwater pipelay and subsea construction vessel.

“Technip is delighted to continue its strong long-lasting relationship with Deep Gulf Energy and to bring and share its unique experience to this new project,” Deanna Goodwin, president of Technip in North America, said.
