Technip has been awarded a services contract by the National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago for two pipelines to be installed offshore the islands of Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean Sea.
The contract covers the front-end engineering design, the provision of subsea and land surveying services and environmental permitting services, as well as project and construction management for the two pipelines.
The first large diameter pipeline will connect the BHP Billiton facility in a block offshore the northeast coast of Trinidad to National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago’s (NGC) existing pipeline network.
The other pipeline will connect the BHP Billiton facility to the south coast of Tobago to supply gas for a power generation plant currently under construction by NGC.
The pipelines are scheduled to be finished by the end of 2009. Technip’s operating center in Houston, Texas, will execute the contracts.
