Technip was awarded Ithaca Energy’s subsea contract for the Greater Stella Area (GSA) development, located 280 km (174 miles) east-southeast of Aberdeen, Scotland, at a water depth of approximately 90 m (295 ft).
Ithaca Energy (UK) Ltd. is developing the GSA, centered on the Stella and Harrier fields as a stand-alone development utilizing its own floating production vessel.
The contract covers detailed design and pipelay of a 33-km (21-mile), 10-in oil export and 63-km (39-mile), 10-in gas export pipeline to the production platform, and various subsea works to the Stella main drill center and north drill center including installation of manifolds, tee structures, flexible pipelay and spoolpiece components, and installation of the mooring system to the production platform and design and installation of five-slot mid water arch.
Technip’s operating center in Aberdeen will execute the contract, which is scheduled to be completed in the second half of 2013. Genesis, Technip’s consultancy subsea and offshore engineering company, will complete the detailed design workscope and flexible flowlines will be manufactured at Technip’s flexible pipe plant in Le Trait, France.
Meanwhile, Technip’s Evanton Spoolbase, near Inverness, Scotland, will fabricate the linepipe, and DUCO, the group’s umbilical manufacturer in Newcastle, England, will provide the umbilicals. Vessels from the Technip fleet will be used for the offshore campaign, including the Skandi Arctic and the Wellservicer.
