Technip’s Flexi-France facility in Le Trait is continuing fabrication of all eight flexible pipe segments. Factory Acceptance tests are scheduled to be completed in March 2012. Buoyancy modules for the flexible pipe segments and Umbilical are being fabricated by Balmoral Offshore Engineering in Aberdeen, U.K.

Technip’s DUCO facility completed extrusion of the plastic sheath onto the Umbilical bundle in early-November. Testing of the Umbilical contents is underway. The next step will be integration of the Subsea Umbilical Termination Assembly provided by EPC3A (Aker).
