Technip was awarded four contracts by Shell UK, Fairfield Energy, Ithaca Energy and TAQA during 2013. As the longevity of fields represents a key challenge for the energy industry, Technip aims to deliver a suite of subsea maintenance services including inspection, repair, maintenance, decommissioning, asset integrity management as well as brownfield construction.

More specifically, Technip has delivered, or is in the process of delivering, the following scopes of work:

  • Diving operations to prepare for decommissioning of the Shell Delta Brent facilities, under a newly-awarded framework agreement to support its UK and Norway assets,
  • Intelligent pigging operations for Fairfield Energy’s Merlin field development (Completed September/October 2013),
  • Light construction work for Ithaca Energy on the Causeway field,
  • Conductor Centraliser maintenance services for TAQA’s Harding field.

Technip’s operating center in Aberdeen, United Kingdom, is managing the projects, scheduled for completion by the end of January 2014. The specialized work scopes, which equate to around 75 vessel days, have utilized the Group’s diving support vessels, including the Orelia, Skandi Arctic and Skandi Achiever.
