Deep Gulf Energy III LLC has awarded Technip a lump-sum contract for the development of the South Santa Cruz and Barataria fields in the ultra-deepwater Gulf of Mexico.

These fields are located in Mississippi Canyon acreage, offshore New Orleans, in approximately 2,000 m (6,651 ft) of water.

The contract consists of project management and engineering services; fabrication and installation of approximately 23 km (14 ft) of pipe-in-pipe flowline; design, fabrication, and installation of flowline end terminations, fabrication and installation of jumpers; and pre-commissioning.

Technip’s operating center in Houston will manage the overall project, which covers all aspects of the field development from engineering to design, manufacturing and installation. The flowline system will be fabricated at the group’s spoolbase in Mobile, Alabama.

The offshore installation is expected to be performed in 2H 2016 by the company’s vessel Deep Blue, the group’s flagship vessel for deepwater pipelay.

Deep Gulf Energy also awarded Technip lump-sum contracts for the Odd Job and Kodiak field developments in the ultra-deepwater Gulf of Mexico.
