The contract covers management, engineering, fabrication, installation, and precommissioning of more than 48 km of 10¾-in. OD insulated flowlines, steel catenary risers, and flowline end terminations. Although the exact amount of the award was not announced, Technip says that substantial subsea awards range €100-250 million.

Julia field was discovered in 2008 with the first well drilled under a 2005 exploration agreement between StatoilHydro and ExxonMobil in the deepwater gulf (OGJ Online, Jan. 8, 2008). The initial development phase includes six wells with subsea tiebacks to the Chevron Corp.-operated Jack and St. Malo production facility and is expected to produce 34,000 b/d of oil starting in 2016 (OGJ Online May 8, 2013). The field covers Walker Ridge Blocks 584, 627, 628, 540, and 583 in 7,200 ft of water.

ExxonMobil operates Julia field with 50% interest. Statoil holds the remaining interest.
