The contract covers engineering, procurement, construction, installation and pre-commissioning of the infield rigid riser and flowlines for production, including the water alternate gas wells. It also comprises the installation and pre-commissioning of service flexible lines and steel tube umbilicals, as well as towing and hook up of the FPSO.
The company will leverage synergies with the Mero 1 project Subsea EPCI, utilising in-house rigid and flexible lay vessels and its significant local footprint in Brazil, including a spoolbase, logistics base and engineering capabilities. The offshore campaign is scheduled to start in 2022.
Arnaud Pieton, President Subsea at TechnipFMC, commented: “We are delighted to have been awarded another EPCI contract by the Libra Consortium, which reinforces the long-standing relationship between Petrobras and TechnipFMC. By executing and delivering this new flagship project, we are looking forward to supporting Petrobras’s ambition in the pre-salt region and contributing to the development of Brazil.”
