Technip has been awarded a substantial contract(1) by Dubai Petroleum Establishment (DPE). This covers the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of the Jalilah B field development project, located nearly 90 kilometers offshore Dubai (United Arab Emirates, UAE), at water depth reaching 60 meters.
Technip’s scope of work consists of the construction and installation of the Jalilah B platform, a 900-ton deck, a 500-ton jacket, as well as 13 new risers(2) on existing platforms. It also includes the installation of 110 kilometers of pipelines ranging from 6 to 24 inches in diameter. This contract will use three of Technip’s specialized vessels, including the G1201, one of the Group’s flagship S-Lay installation vessel designed for work in both deep and shallow water.
Technip’s operating center in Abu Dhabi will execute this fast-track project, scheduled for completion in the second half of 2014.
With a nearly 30-year presence in the Middle-East, Technip combines together keen understanding of business needs, differentiating technology offer and strong execution capabilities. The Group is therefore well positioned to manage increasing complex projects of the oil and gas industry in the UAE.
