LONDON, July 21 -- Anadarko Petroleum Corp. has let two lump-sum contracts to Technip SA to design equipment to bring deepwater Caesar Tonga field on stream by 2011 in the Gulf of Mexico.

Caesar Tonga is a subsea tie-back to Anadarko’s Constitution Spa development. It lies 190 miles off New Orleans in 1,500 m of water.

Technip will design and supply the components for four pipe-in-pipe flowlines and install 43 km of flowlines. It also includes the design, fabrication, and installation of eight pipeline end terminations.

This development will use the pipe-in-pipe technology, which provides insulation and flow assurance for effective production in deep and ultradeep water. Offshore installation will be carried out with the Deep Blue, Technip’s deepwater pipelay vessel.

The second contract covers the project management, engineering, and fabrication of two control umbilicals and their termination hardware. This contract, which is scheduled to be completed in third quarter 2010, will be executed by Duco, Technip’s wholly owned subsidiary in Houston.
