Technip has been awarded a contract by a ‘major operator’ to supply a subsea control umbilical in the Gulf of Mexico.
The contract with an unnamed buyer was won by Technip’s wholly-owned subsidiary Technip Umbilicals Inc. It includes the project management and manufacture of several kilometers of a static and dynamic unarmoured steel tube umbilical.
Technip Umbilicals facility in Houston, USA, will manufacture this project for the high pressure field, which is scheduled to be completed in 2017.
The French company did not provide any information about the financial details of the contract.
Technip Umbilicals’ Managing Director, Sarah Cridland, said: “This award confirms Technip’s position as a world leader in the supply of umbilical systems to the Gulf of Mexico region.”
