TechnipFMC has been awarded a large subsea engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract by Petrobras for its Búzios 6 field (module 7), a greenfield development in the pre-salt area.

The contract covers flexible and rigid pipe, umbilicals, pipeline end terminals, rigid jumpers, umbilical termination assemblies and a mooring system.

Jonathan Landes, President, Subsea at TechnipFMC, comments, “We are excited to announce this award, which demonstrates the continuing strength of the subsea market in Brazil and our collaborative relationship with Petrobras. We used our deep understanding of the client’s needs to arrive at technological solutions developed specifically for the Búzios 6 field.”

The flexible pipe, umbilicals and subsea structures, as well as some of the rigid pipe, will be manufactured in Brazil using skills and competencies the company has developed in-country, while minimising the carbon footprint associated with transportation and installation. The project will also utilise TechnipFMC’s established and qualified Brazilian supply chain.

Note: For TechnipFMC, a “large” contract is between USD 500 million and USD 1 billion.
