DRIL-QUIP has been awarded a contract worth about $100million by FloaTEC de Mexico to supply drilling and production equipment for the P-61 tension-leg wellhead platform (TLWP) being built for Petrobras of Brazil.
When completed, the P-61 will be installed on the Papa Terra field, located in the Campos Basin offshore Brazil on block BC-20.
The $1billion contract to construct the platform was awarded to FloaTEC and J. Ray McDermott-Keppel FELS earlier this year. The unit will be built in Brazil.
However, McDermott will fabricate the tendons, temporary buoyancy modules and piles at its Morgan City facility in Louisiana, while the FloaTEC Singapore joint venture will supply risers, well systems and tendon components.
