Technip has been awarded a contract from a consortium controlled by Petrobas Netherland BV for work in the Santos Basin pre-salt area.
The scope of work will include supplying 114km of flexible pipes including gas lift, gas injection and gas export lines in the ongoing development of the Iracema North field.
The flexible pipes will be produced at Technip’s manufacturing sites of Vitoria and Acu.
Adriano Novitsky, president of Technip in Brazil, said: “This award confirms the flexible pipe as a reliable and optimized solution for the pre-salt challenging applications and Technips´ technological leadership in this business.
“It follows the flexible pipe supply contract awarded last year for the Iracema Sul field.”
Technip’s operating centre in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, will perform the engineering and project management.
The highly technological flexible pipes are designed to meet Petrobras’ requested service life for up to 30 years, sour service application, water depths of up to 2,500 meters and high pressures to inject gas in the reservoir (gas injection pipes).
Technip said delivery is scheduled to start in the first half of 2015.
The other members of the Petrobas Netherland BV controlled consortium of which it has a 65% share includes BG with 25% and Galp with 10%.
The deal comes just a day after Technip confirmed it had approached CGG in a £1.2billion takeover bid.
