Technip, in a consortium with National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC), was awarded a lump sum engineering, procurement, fabrication, installation, commissioning, and start-up contract for the Upper Zakum 750K project in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
The contract was awarded by Zakum Development Co.
The field is located in the gulf, 84 km (52 miles) offshore Abu Dhabi. It is divided into four production artificial islands (central, north, south, and west), with processing facilities at the central complex.
The scope of work covers 240 km (149 miles) of subsea pipelines ranging from six inches to 42 inches, 128 km (80 miles) of subsea composite and fiber-optic cables, and almost 30,000 tons of offshore structures (jackets, riser platforms, flare towers, and bridges), including approximately 3,000 tons of islands modules and bridges.
The contract also includes the complete initial production facilities for temporary wells hook up to serve initial production distributed amongst the North, South and Central islands.
Technip's operating center in Abu Dhabi will execute the overall engineering and participate in procurement, on-island works, cable installation, and initial production. The project is scheduled to be completed in the 3Q of 2015.
