Technip awarded an ultra-deep water pipeline contract in the Gulf of MexicoTechnip has been awarded by Shell a contract for the ultra-deep water Perdido oil field development, located approximately 200 miles south of Freeport (Texas), in the Gulf of Mexico.

The contract covers engineering, fabrication and installation of one flowline and one steel catenary riser, with a total length of 8.24 miles. The pipelines will reach a maximum water depth of 9,700 feet along the route.

Moored in about 8,000 feet of water, this record breaking Spar will be the deepest spar production facility in the world and the first with direct vertical access (DVA)
