French engineering services provider Technip has secured a contract from Total E&P UK for the Edradour subsea development, West of Shetlands.
The development is located in Block 206/4a, in water depths of about 300m, 75km north-west of the Shetlands.
The development plan includes the conversion of the discovery well into a production well and a 16km production pipeline tied back to the main Laggan-Tormore flowline.
Edradour is anticipated to start operations in the fourth quarter of 2017 and reach a plateau of 17,000bpd, with an estimated development cost of £340m.
Technip’s operating centre in Oslo, Norway, will carry out the project, which includes fabricating and installing 12in production pipelines and a six-inch MEG pipeline complete with a two-inch piggy-backed service line.
The company will also deliver and install the steel tube umbilical, and fabricate and install the pipeline end manifold, flowline end termination, flexible tails and rigid well tie-in spools.
Work also includes installation of templates and manifolds provided by the client, and Technip will manage the rock dumping and pre-commissioning stages.
The pipelines will be fabricated at Technip’s spoolbase in Evanton, UK, while the umbilicals are manufactured in Newcastle.
Technip North Sea Canada division president Knut Boe said: "Technip is extremely proud of the award of this contract, which demonstrates the competitiveness of our project management, engineering organisation and our new state-of-the-art vessel."
