change text size

French oilfield services firm Technip announced Wednesday that it and partner Techint have been awarded a "substantial contract" by PNBV (a Petrobras subsidiary) to support the construction of the P-76 floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit. Tasks include the topside construction and integration of the unit, as well as providing commissioning and start-up assistance.

Technip said its operating center in Rio de Janeiro will perform the project management, engineering and procurement for the contract. Fabrication, integration and commissioning of 24,000 tons of modules will be performed in Techint's yard in the south of Brazil. The project is scheduled to be completed by mid-2017.

José Jorge Araújo, Technip's senior vice president for onshore Latin America and offshore Brazil, commented in a statement:

"We are delighted to have the opportunity to keep working with Petrobras. This contract strengthens furthermore our presence in the burgeoning Brazilian offshore pre-salt market, where our leading-edge position enables us to meet its high standards and requirements. 

"We fully expect that our partnership with Techint will be a key to the success of the P-76 FPSO. Moreover, this project will contribute to the local economy as it will require approximately 70 percent of Brazilian local content."
