The contract is worth 100 million euros net to Technip-Coflexip, the company said. The French engineering firm and Nargan, in which it holds 20% stake, will oversee basic and detailed engineering for the unit as well as procurement of equipment and materials. The construction, commissioning, and start-up of the unit is expected to be completed in 34 months, the companies said.
