HOUSTON, Oct. 26 -- Ghana National Petroleum Co. let a lump-sum contract to Technip for Phase 1 of GNPC’s Natural Gas Transportation & Processing project, 60 km off Ghana. The contract covers engineering, welding, and installation of a 14-km rigid steel flowline, as well as engineering, fabrication, and installation of one pipeline end termination.

The flowline will be the deepwater section of a pipeline moving associated natural gas from the 1.8-billion bbl Jubilee oil field to an onshore processing plant.

Press reports from Ghana in May stated work was under way on first-phase construction of the gas processing plant (OGJ, June 7, 2010, p. 52).

Technip’s operating center in Paris will execute the contract, with the flowline welded at the company’s spoolbase in Mobile, Ala. Installation will begin at yearend, carried out by Apache II, Technip’s new pipelay vessel.
