By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, Dec. 9 -- Marathon International Petroleum Ireland Ltd. has awarded a £7 million contract to Technip Offshore UK Ltd., the UK unit of Paris-based Technip-Coflexip, to install a gathering pipeline from the Greensand development in the Celtic Sea off Ireland.

The contract includes all work required to tie back the Greensand well to the Kinsale Bravo platform, 7 km away. Within the scope of the contract, Technip Offshore will perform project management, engineering and design, manufacture and installation of the 10-in. rigid flowline and riser system, and the procurement and installation of a 200 m electrohydraulic control umbilical.

Technip Offshore also will carry out all subsea tie-ins, testing, and pre-commissioning of the completed infrastructure. First gas is slated by July 2003.

Fabrication of the rigid flowlines will be undertaken at Technip-Coflexip's Evanton spoolbase in Scotland and then transported and laid onsite at Greensand by the CSO Apache reel ship. The CSO Wellservicer diving support vessel will carry out installation of the platform riser, umbilical and associated structures, and the tie-ins and testing.
