Petrobras Netherlands BV, a subsidiary of leading integrated oil and gas company Petrobas, has awarded Technip a consortium contract controlled by the organisation for work in the Santos Basic pre-salt area.
This contract follows the flexible pipe supply contract awarded last year for the Iracema Sul field and will continue to develop the project. Technip will supply 114km of flexible pipes and will involve gas lift, gas injection and gas export lines.
The organisation will produce the flexible pipes at their Vitoria and Acu manufacturing sites, and begin the delivery in the first half of 2015.
The new technological flexible pipes will provide a service life of about 30 years for sour service application, in water depths of up to 2,500m, and will also withstand high-pressure gas injection in the reservoir.
