France-based Technip has secured subsea contracts from Maersk Oil to work on two projects, located approximately 250km offshore Esbjerg, Denmark.

The contracts cover Maersk’s Valdemar and Roar gas lift project, as well as the Rolf replacement pipeline project, located on the Danish continental shelf.

Technip did not reveal the exact value of the contracts but said they were important deals with a total value between €50m and €100m.

The contracts require Technip to fabricate and install two riser caissons on the Valdemar and Roar platforms, as well as an 18km flowline between the Rolf A and Gorm E platforms.

Technip will also complete pipeline trenching and protection operations, fabricate and install 34 spools, and undertake offshore commissioning.

"Technip operates a fleet of specialised vessels for pipeline installation and subsea construction."

The projects will be executed from Technip’s operating centre in Oslo, Norway, and the company anticipates using its diving and multi-support vessel Wellservicer for the offshore installation in mid-2015.

The flowline for the Rolf pipeline project will be fabricated in Orkanger, Norway, and installed by the company’s Apache II pipelay vessel.

Technip North Sea Canada president Knut Boe said: "We are looking forward to managing these two projects, which combine our diving, construction and pipelay capabilities, in the Danish subsea market."
