Technip Wins Brazilian Flexible Pipe Deal



French oilfield services Technip announced Friday that it has won a contract to supply high-technology flexible pipes to the Iracema North pre-salt field in the Santos Basin area offshore Brazil.

Technip was awarded the contract by Tupi BV – a consortium controlled by Petrobras Netherland BV (which owns 65 percent of the field), BG Group (25 percent) and Galp Energia (10 percent).

The contract covers the supply of 70 miles of flexible pipes, including gas lift, gas injection and gas export lines. The pipes are designed to meet Petrobras's requirement for a service life for up to 30 years, sour-service application, water depths of up to 8,200 feet and high pressures to inject gas in the reservoir.

Technip's Rio de Janeiro operating center will perform the engineering and project management. The pipes will be produced at Technip's manufacturing sites at Vitoria and Açu. The delivery of the pipes is scheduled to begin during the first half of 2015.

Adriano Novitsky, President of Technip in Brazil, commented in a company statement:

"This award confirms the flexible pipe as a reliable and optimized solution for the pre-salt challenging applications and Technip's technological leadership in this business. It follows the flexible pipe supply contract awarded last year for the Iracema Sul field."
