Leviathan development: Jumbo awarded transportation and Installation contract

Jumbo has been awarded the transportation and Installation of a 410t subsea production manifold at a depth of 1643 metres off the coast of Israel for the Leviathan development.

Technip is preparing for a project including a subsea production system connecting high-rate subsea wells to a fixed platform located approximately 10km offshore Israel.
Technip awarded Jumbo’s Offshore division with the contract to perform the task of lowering the manifold onto the seabed at a 1643m water depth and installing various other SSIV’s and valve skids at a water depth of approximately 86m. In addition to this, Jumbo will also transport various equipment from US Gulf Coast to Eastern Mediterranean.
The Jumbo team will also provide reliable project management and engineering services for this scope of work, including attendance of HIRAs and review of Technip procedures and analyses.
