TechnipFMC secures subsea contract for Lapa Pre-Salt Field in Brazil


UK-based TechnipFMC (NYSE: FTI) (PARIS: FTI) has been awarded a contract for the Lapa field by Total E&P do Brasil Ltda on behalf of the Lapa Field Consortium, comprised of Total (35%), Shell Brasil Petróleo Ltda. (30%), Repsol Sinopec Brasil S.A. (25%) and Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. – Petrobras (10%).

The Lapa field is located in the pre-salt Santos Basin, under the BM-S-9A concession, at 2,150 meters of water depth offshore Brazil.

TechnipFMC said on Tuesday that the contract covers the supply of flexible pipes for oil production, gas lift and gas injection as well as associated accessories. The field will be connected to the FPSO Cidade de Caraguatatuba, already in operation.

Arnaud Piéton, President Subsea at TechnipFMC, commented: “We are honored to be selected to execute the Lapa pre-salt field project in Brazil. We look forward to collaborating with Total and the Lapa Field Consortium to further enhance the hydrocarbon potential of Brazil.”

TechnipFMC is one of ExxonMobil Guyana’s prime contractors for the Liza Phase 1 development and has also secured contracts for the second phase of the project for the manufacture and installation of subsea equipment.

The company recently broke ground on its new location at Houston, on the East Bank of Demerara in Guyana.
