Technip has entered into a worldwide alliance agreement with Heerema Marine Contractors to combine their operational strengths for offering services in the subsea ultra-deepwater market.
Under the terms of the five-year alliance agreement, the companies will offer combined assets for ultra-deepwater engineering, procurement, construction and installation projects in all subsea markets.
Technip chairman and chief executive officer Thierry Pilenko and Heerema Marine Contractors CEO Pieter Heerema, in a joint statement, said the companies have strengthened their working relationship with this long-term alliance.
"Both companies have solid reputations and long-term relationships with common customers. Our track record on execution and culture of delivery are recognized by our clients," said Pilenko and Heerema.
"Together, we will provide them with unrivalled capabilities for execution in harsh, ultra-deepwater environments, enabling them to bring these promising reservoirs into production."
The alliance will increase the companies’ commercial footprint worldwide, with the presence of an international network of engineering centres with the latest technologies, supported by increased R&D spending and project management capabilities.
It will also provide a network of logistic bases and manufacturing plants, while Heerema will provide high tension J-Lay vessels through their installation vessels Aegir (under construction) and Balder, S-Lay and Reel-Lay assets of both companies.
