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.”
