Technip was awarded by Husky Oil Operations two contracts, with a combined substantial(1) value, for the planned subsea tieback of the South White Rose Extension field. The field is an extension of the White Rose field, located in the Jeanne d'Arc Basin, approximately 350 kilometers southeast of St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.
The first contract will be executed in 2013 and will include the supply and installation of gas injection flowlines(2), umbilicals(3) and subsea structures.
The second contract will take place in 2014 and will cover the supply and installation of flowlines and subsea structures to support oil production and water injection.
Technip's operating center in St. John's will perform the management and engineering of both projects, with various materials and equipment being supplied from within the Group and local supply chain.
Knut Boe, Senior Vice President of Technip's North Sea-Canada Region, commented: “These two awards reinforce Technip's continuous involvement in Atlantic Canada's offshore oil and gas projects. They also mark a new step in the relationship between Technip and Husky Oil Operations, for whom we successfully completed the subsea production system contract for the White Rose field development in 2005.”
