TechnipFMC said on Monday that the steel-cutting ceremony was held in Jutal’s Zhuhai yard in China.

Arnaud Pieton, president of subsea at TechnipFMC, said: “This is an important milestone for the project and is another step towards delivery of our first hybrid compact manifold in Asia.

“We look forward to a safe and successful execution of this scope with our subcontractor Jutal. The Liuhua 16-2 oilfields development project is a strategic project for the China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) and continues TechnipFMC’s long collaborative relationship with this customer.”

The contract for work on the project was awarded to TechnipFMC in May of last year. It covers engineering, procurement and construction of subsea equipment, including 26 units of enhanced horizontal christmas trees (EHXT) as well as wellheads, subsea control systems, manifolds, tie-in systems, and intervention workover control systems (IWOCS).

The deal also covers support services for the installation and commissioning, as well as the provision of a local services support base in China.

The Liuhua 16-2 oilfields development project is a joint oilfield development project, covering the Liuhua 16-2, 20-2, and 21-2 fields located offshore China in the South China Sea, at water depths ranging from 380 to 430 meters.
