Technip UK has secured a €600m contract from BP and partners to develop the subsea infrastructure for the Quad 204 project, located west of the Shetland Isles.

The scope of work involves replacing the existing Schiehallion production facility with a new purpose built floating production, storage and offloading vessel, as well as installing extensive new subsea infrastructure.

Technip senior vice president of the North Sea Canada region Knut Boe said his company was pleased to be supporting BP with the Quad 204 project.

"It is a significant milestone for the UK Continental Shelf both in terms of size and scope and is a fantastic example of Technip’s ability to deliver large, complex developments," said Boe.

Technip UK will also aid in recovery of all existing flexible risers and dynamic umbilical systems, the supply and installation of 21 dynamic flexible risers, as well as four static and dynamic umbilicals.

The firm will coat, weld and install 15 steel pipelines totalling 50km, supply and install numerous flexible jumpers and other manifolds, jumpers and infrastructure associated with the development.

The project was approved in July 2011 and is expected to recover 450 million barrels of oil and extend production through to 2035.
