HOUSTON, Jan. 20 -- Noble Energy EG Ltd. awarded Technip a contract for part of the development work for Aseng field in Block I off Equatorial Guinea.
The scope of the contract involves engineering, supply, installation, and precommissioning of a 30-km flexible pipe system, including six flexible risers and flexible flowlines as well as jumpers. The contract also covers installation of the subsea production system that includes manifolds, flying leads, and umbilicals.
Under a separate contract, Duco, Technip’s subsidiary in Houston, will fabricate the umbilicals. Technip’s operating center in Paris will execute the contract, and its plant in Le Trait, France will fabricate all flexible pipe.
Noble plans to produce Aseng through five subsea wells tied to a floating production, storage, and offloading vessel moored in 3,100 ft of water. Produced gas and water will be reinjected. The company expects the $1.3 billion project to come onstream in mid-2012 and produce 50,000 bo/d (OGJ Online, July 22, 2009).
