Technip sets world record

Technip has set new world deepwater records with the Deep Blue on the Na Kika project in the Gulf of Mexico. Technip has announced that the largest ultra-deepwater reeled pipelay and sub-sea construction vessel in the industry, the Deep Blue, has realised an unprecedented series of deepwater industry records after completion of its work on the Na Kika project, in the Gulf of Mexico. The Deep Blue, a 677-foot construction vessel, completed its most recent challenge for the Na Kika project in water depths down to 7600 feet. Na Kika is a Shell/BP joint venture to develop six separate oil and gas fields surrounding Mississippi Canyon Block 474. In March 2004, the Deep Blue completed the infield pipelines, as well as the steel catenary risers (SCR’s) that will bring a production totaling 110,000 barrels of oil and 425 million cubic feet of gas (per day) from below the seabed to the Na Kika platform processing plant.
