Technip’s scope of the contract covers: design, supply and installation of three production manifolds and three subsea distribution assemblies; engineering, welding and installation of approximately 67km of rigid production flowlines; and engineering, fabrication and installation of approximately 88km of umbilicals, 12km of flexible flowlines and three flexible jumpers.

The company’s scope also includes connection of the flowlines and umbilicals to the wellheads and subsea manifolds; and pre-commissioning of the entire system and support to the client for commissioning and start-up activities.
