TechnipFMC has been awarded a significant engineering, procurement, construction and installation contract by Shell plc for the Jackdaw development in the United Kingdom North Sea.
The contract covers pipelay for a 30-kilometre tieback from the new Jackdaw platform to Shell’s Shearwater platform, as well as an associated riser, spool pieces, subsea structures, and umbilicals.
The tieback will use pipe-in-pipe technology, which is designed for high-pressure, high-temperature use.
Jonathan Landes, President, Subsea at TechnipFMC, commented, “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.”
