TechnipFMC announced a major integrated engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (iEPCI™) contract awarded by Petrobras. This contract, valued over US$1 billion, is for the Mero 3 HISEP® project, an endeavor utilizing subsea processing to capture and inject carbon dioxide-rich dense gases back into the reservoir.

TechnipFMC and Petrobras have jointly worked on qualifying various core technologies vital for the HISEP® (high pressure separation) process, entirely subsea. This process, including proprietary gas separation systems and dense gas pumps, is instrumental in enabling the injection of CO2-rich dense gas.

The Mero 3 project, located in Brazil’s pre-salt field, will be the first to implement Petrobras’s patented HISEP® process subsea. This technology captures CO2-rich dense gases directly from the well stream, transferring part of the separation process from the topside platform to the sea floor. HISEP® technologies not only reduce greenhouse gas emission intensity but also augment production capacity by easing the load on the topside gas processing plant. 

The Libra Consortium, which is supporting these technologies, consists of Petrobras as operator (38.6%); Shell Brasil Petróleo Ltda. (19.3%); TotalEnergies EP Brasil Ltda. (19.3%); CNOOC Petroleum Brasil Ltda. (9.65%); CNODC Brasil Petróleo e Gas Ltda. (9.65%); and Pré-Sal Petróleo S.A. (3.5%), as the Brazilian government’s representative in the non-contracted area.

Luana Duffé, Executive Vice President, New Energy at TechnipFMC, stated, “This is an important moment for our Company. With the HISEP® project, we will again demonstrate how our leadership in subsea processing, technology innovation, and integrated solutions can deliver real and sustainable benefits to our partners. We are honored to be trusted by Petrobras and its partners in the Libra Consortium to deliver this transformational project.”
