BP, operator of the Thunderhorse semi-submersible production and drilling facility, will be further developing Mississippi Canyon Blocks 778 and 822 through the addition of two additional subsea production flowlines.
French EPC contractor Technip has been awarded the full scope of the project from the initial design through pre-commissioning and testing. The work entails the coating, fabrication, installation and permanent anchoring of two rigid production flowlines of 3.25 kilometers each with 4 pipeline end terminations in water depths of approximately 1,900 meters.
Deanna Goodwin, President of Technip in North America, commented: “This award follows Technip’s execution of several phases of the Thunder Horse development since 2003, culminating with the installation of the Gulf of Mexico’s first plastically lined water injection pipelines in December 2014. We are extremely pleased to have this opportunity to contribute to the further development of the Thunder Horse field.”
Technip says they will utilize the deepwater pipelay vessel Deep Blue for the installation.
