technipFrance’s Technip has landed a contract worth up to $100 million to supply umbilicals to Total’s deep-water Egina oil development off Nigeria.

The Paris-headquartered services giant is to supply about 76 kilometres of steel tube umbilicals under a project management, engineering and manufacture contract.

This field is situated in Oil Mining Lease 130, around 200 kilometres from Port Harcourt in water depths of between 1150 and 1750 metres.

Technip said that 80% of project management and 30% of the engineering would be carried out by its Nigerian subsidiary, with umbilicals manufacturing from Newcastle.

The project is scheduled for delivery in 2016.

Technip did not disclose the value of the contract but said it was worth between $50 million and $100 million.

Last month Milan-based Saipem landed a $3 billion subsea development package for Egina, while Houston’s FMC Technologies secured a $1.2 billion contract for the subsea production system.

Samsung Heavy Industries is supplying a floating production, storage and offloading vessel which is designed to handle 200,000 barrels per day of oil and 160 million cubic feet per day of gas.
