TechnipFMC secures EPCI contract for Shell’s development in UK North Sea


TechnipFMC has won a significant engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) contract from Shell for the Jackdaw development in the UK North Sea.

The contract encompasses pipelay for a 30 km tieback from the new Jackdaw platform to Shell’s Shearwater platform, along with a related riser, spoolpieces, subsea structures, and umbilicals.

TechnipFMC terms a contract as significant if its value is between $75m and $250m.

The tieback will utilise pipe-in-pipe technology, which is intended for use under high-pressure and high-temperature.

TechnipFMC Subsea president Jonathan Landes said: “We’re excited to embark on this significant project together in the UK North Sea. Our strong technical record and our ability to design, engineer, construct and install were key to our success in winning this award.”

Earlier this month, TechnipFMC secured a significant EPCI contract from TotalEnergies for its Lapa North East field in the pre-salt Santos Basin offshore Brazil.

Under the contract, TechnipFMC is responsible for reconfiguring and installation of umbilicals and flexile pipe in a new configuration to secure the production from the field.

Landes had then said: “The Brazilian offshore market is becoming more diverse with regard to work scope and customer opportunity. On Lapa North East, we are working with a valued client with whom we have built a trusted relationship.

“By offering the flexibility of a phased campaign, we are helping TotalEnergies accelerate its schedule and begin production sooner.”
