France-based Technip has announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary DUCO has won a contract from Total Upstream Nigeria to supply umbilicals for the Egina field.

The field is situated within the Oil Mining Lease 130, about 200km from Port Harcourt, at water depths ranging from 1,150m to 1,750m.

Under the contract, ranging from €50m to €100m, the company will provide project management, engineering and manufacturing of about 76km of steel tube umbilicals, including production, water injection and subsea isolation valve umbilicals.

DUCO managing director Jean-Louis Rostaing said, "We are proud to have been awarded this contract, notably thanks to our strong relationship with the client and our ability to contribute to Nigerian content development."

As part of the project, 80% of project management and 30% of engineering work will be carried out locally in Nigeria.

The umbilicals will be manufactured at DUCO’s facility in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.

The project is scheduled for delivery in 2016.
