Technip was awarded by Total E&P Congo an important engineering, procurement, and supply contract for the Moho Nord project, the largest development ever in the Republic of Congo, located 75 kilometers offshore Pointe Noire.
The Moho Nord project consists of two developments: Moho Phase 1bis and Moho Nord. This contract is part of the Moho Phase 1bis development. It is a brownfield development consisting of tie-backs to the existing deepwater Alima floating production unit (FPU) and the shallow-water N’Kossa platform.
The contract covers the project management, detail engineering, procurement and supply for the modifications of the Alima FPU, with two new subsea tie-backs(1).
Technip’s operating center in Paris, France will manage this contract, which is scheduled to be completed in the first semester of 2015. Technip will also provide assistance to Total for the offshore construction phase to be spread from 2014 to 2016.
Jean-Marc Aubry, Senior Vice President of Technip’s Region A(2), declared: “This contract, the second one awarded to Technip for the Moho Nord development project, illustrates Total E&P’s confidence in our expertise. This fast-track project represents a milestone in consolidating our presence in the high-development potential West Africa offshore market.”
