Technip Clinches Subsea Installation Contract in UK North Sea

Technip has been awarded by TAQA Bratani Ltd. an installation contract for the development of the Falcon field, which is located in the North Sea approximately 560 kilometers northeast of Aberdeen, in 160 meters of water.

The contract covers:

* project management and engineering,

* installation of a 6” production flexible flowline(1) and a 4” gas lift flexible flowline,

* installation of a control umbilical(2) and a subsea distribution unit, both free-issued,
