03 March 2014, Paris – France’s Technip has been awarded a significant contract, worth from $68.5 to $137 million (€50 to €100 million), by Total E&P Borneo B.V., covering engineering, procurement, supply, construction and commissioning (EPSCC). This project aims at the modification of the onshore facilities as well as the construction of a new onshore pipeline, in order to transport Maharaja Lela & Jamalulalam South (MLJS) gas to the Brunei Liquefied Natural Gas (BLNG) plant.
The onshore modification work includes:
- de-bottlenecking of the processing plant to enable handling up to 176.55 million cubic feet per day, or 5 million cubic meters per day, (annual average) from the greater MLJ field
- associated assistance in start-up and performance test
Technip’s operating center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia will execute the contract with support from the office of the Group based in Brunei. The project is scheduled for completion in the second half of 2015.
Lim Kwee Keong, senior vice president of Technip in Asia Pacific, stated: “Following the front-end engineering design that we have completed in 2012, Technip was keen on undertaking the EPSCC contract. Vital for the brownfield tie-in of the MLJS project, our familiarity with the onshore facilities has made the difference and gave us leverage in this much sought-after development.”
