Technip has secured a subsea contract from Chevron Indonesia for the Bangka Development, located in the Rapak PSC area, about 70km offshore the province of East Kalimantan, Indonesia.
The contract, which is ranging from €100m to €250m, requires Technip to provide engineering, procurement, construction, installation, commissioning and pre-commissioning of flexibles, umbilical and subsea structures.
Technip’s operating centres in Jakarta, Indonesia, and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia will implement the contract.
The centres will offer customer support from conception to execution.
Technip will fabricate the flexible pipes at its Asiaflex Products plant in Tanjung Langsat, Johor, Malaysia, while the umbilical will be manufactured at Technip Umbilicals’ facility in Texas, US.
The company’s Deep Orient multi-purpose installation and construction vessel will be used during the installation phase of the project.
Technip Asia Pacific president KK Lim said: "We are delighted to be awarded this new project. It demonstrates our differentiating advantage of having a unique vertically integrated value chain for subsea infrastructures to provide the most competitive solutions to our client."
Chevron completed front end engineering and design (FEED) for the deepwater Bangka project in December 2011and started the contracting approval process with the Indonesian Government.
The project scope includes a subsea tieback to a floating production unit (FPU).
Chevron’s working interest in the Bangka project is 62%.
