Subsea PipeTechnology Pipe–Technology–Deal for Technip in Brazil's Offshore Industry
Technip bags a three–digits million Euros contract from Tupi, a Brazilian offshore consortium. The plant engineers will supply 200 kilometers of flexible pipes and associated equipment for the development of the Lala Alto offshore field.
Rio de Janeiro/Brazil – Technip was awarded a major contract from Tupi, a consortium composed of Petrobras Netherland, BG and Galp for the ongoing development of the Lula Alto field, located in the Santos Basin pre-salt area, Brazil. The contract covers the supply of around 200 kilometers of flexible pipes and associated equipment, including gas lift, gas and water injection, gas export and production lines, which are designed to meet pre-salt challenges with water depths of up to 2,500 meters and high pressures.
Technip’s operating center in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, will perform the project management and engineering. The flexible pipes will be produced at company sites in Vitoria and Açu, Brazil. Delivery is scheduled to start in the second half of 2015.
Adriano Novitsky, President of Technip in Brazil, commented: “Lula Alto is a major project for Technip in Brazil. Its size contributes to improving even more the workload visibility of our manufacturing plants. In addition, the challenging technical requirements confirm again the suitability of flexible pipes to pre-salt developments and Technip's strong position in this domain.”
