LONDON, June 6 -- Talisman Energy Inc., operator of Yme field, let a €110 million, turnkey contract to Technip on behalf of its consortium members to undertake engineering work for the redevelopment of the Norwegian North Sea field.

Technip will design, procure, fabricate, and install 36 km of production, water injection, and service-rigid flow lines. It also will install umbilicals, spools, subsea protection structures, and a manifold. The contract also covers tie-in, trenching, rock dumping, and precommissioning of the field.

Technip's Apache pipelay vessel will install the flow lines along with other vessels in the company. Offshore installation is scheduled for 2008 and 2009.

Norway approved the plan for development of Yme field earlier this year (OGJ Online, May 14, 2007). The partners will drill 12 production and injection wells, install a production platform to process oil and gas, and establish water injection facilities. First production is planned for 2009 with expected maximum gross production of 40,000 b/d of oil.

Talisman holds a 70% stake in the PL 316 license that includes the Yme field. Revus Energy ASA has 20% and Pertra ASA has 10%.
