UTEC secures major deal from Liza subsea contractor TechnipFMC affiliate


UTEC, a global survey company in subsea services group Acteon said it has won a contract from Technip Oceania Pty Ltd, part of TechnipFMC in Australia, to provide survey and positioning services on the Greater Enfield Project, offshore Western Australia.

The work scope includes pre-lay surveys; onshore dimensional control; survey and positioning associated with installation of rigid and flexible flowlines, umbilicals, jumpers, flying leads and subsea structures; as-laid surveys, as-built surveys and final reporting.

The Greater Enfield Project will develop the Laverda Canyon, Norton over Laverda (WA-59-L) and Cimatti (WA-28-L) oil accumulations. These reserves will be tied back to the Ngujima-Yin FPSO facility.

To execute the work scope UTEC said it has set up a project management team in Perth and Singapore with additional personnel based in Kuala Lumpur. Preparation is already well underway with offshore activity due to commence early in 2018.

TechnipFMC has been awarded a contract by ExxonMobil Guyana for the engineering, manufacture and delivery of the subsea equipment for the Liza deep water project, 120 miles of the coast of the South American country.
