French engineering giant Technip has confirmed it has been awarded a subsea contract by Anglo-Dutch supermajor Shell on the Malikai project, off Malaysia.

Friday’s announcement confirmed earlier reports by Upstream the French company had been awarded the contract for the the transportation, installation and pre-commissioning of an eight-inch 50-kilometre gas pipeline and a 10-inch 55-kilometre liquid pipeline.

The two pipelines will stretch from the Malikai tension leg platform site to the nearby Kebabangan platform.

Technip’s operating centres in Malaysia and Singapore will carry out the contract which is scheduled to be completed in 2015.

Technip said offshore installation work would be carried out by its G1201 S-Lay vessel.

The contract is the second awarded to Technip on the Malikai projectf following the award of the engineering, procurement and construction contract for the TLP at the field which it is carrying out in partnership with Malaysia Marine & Heavy Engineering (MMHE).

The TLP will be built and commissioned at MMHE’s fabrication yard at Pasir Gudang in Johor, Malaysia, and is due for completion in mid-2015.

Shell and its partners made a final investment decision on the Malikai deep-water project earlier this month which will see 17 wells drilled from the TLP.

The Malikai field lies within the Block G production sharing contract, about 100 kilometres off Sabah, in water depths of up to 500 metres.

Shell operates the project with a 35% interest, with ConocoPhillips and Petronas holding a 35% and 30% interest respectively.
