Technip was awarded by BP Exploration & Production Inc. a lump sum project for the design, engineering, fabrication, installation and pre-commissioning of the new production pipeline systems on the south side of the Thunder Horse production drilling quarters unit.

At a water depth of approximately 1,900 meters, the current field development is located in Mississippi Canyon Blocks 778 and 822, in the ultra-deepwater Gulf of Mexico environment.

The project scope covers: • Project management and engineering, • Coating, fabrication, installation and permanent anchoring of two rigid production flowlines of 3.25 kilometers each with 4 pipeline end terminations, • Pre-commissioning and testing. Technip will leverage its unique integrated approach in the subsea business. Technip's operating center in Houston, Texas, USA, will perform the overall project management.

The infield flowlines will be welded at the Group’s spoolbase in Mobile, Alabama, USA. The offshore installation is expected to be performed in the second half of 2016 by Technip’s flag ship vessel the Deep Blue, one of the world's largest ultra-deepwater pipelay and subsea construction vessel.
