Client: Technip FMC | Cargo: Selection of reels
We were delighted to work with TechnipFMC on three reel shipments during a busy summer campaign. These shipments facilitated TechnipFMC’s ongoing work in support of their offshore development projects. The first shipment was in support of the CNOOC International Telford project, to transport a number of reels on installation cradles from Technip’s manufacturing facilities in Newcastle and Le Trait, to Nigg. The second cargo shipment included umbilicals for TFMC’s work on the Evelyn Phase 1 and Gannet E Expansion projects, in partnership with Dana Petroleum and Tailwind Energy, as well as TFMC’s contract with Ithaca Energy (UK) on their Enhanced Oil recovery project at the captain field in the North Sea.
