World`s deepest gas pipeline in Gulf of Mexico
Paris: French firm Technip will lay the world`s deepest gas pipeline for energy giant Shell in the US Gulf of Mexico, as told by the oil services company in a statement on Friday.
The company said it was awarded "an important engineering, procurement and installation contract for the development of subsea infrastructure for the Stones field," at a depth of approximately 2,900 metres.
The project will be the deepest floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit in the world and Shell`s first in the Gulf of Mexico, Technip said, without specifying how much the contract was worth.
"With the award of this high-profile project, Technip confirms its subsea leadership and keeps differentiating itself through innovation to remain at the forefront of frontier projects," Technip`s Senior Vice President for North America Savid Dickson said.
