TechnipFMC has secured a contract for the Lapa field, located in the pre-salt Santos Basin under the BM-S-9A concession offshore Brazil at 2,150m of water depth.

The contract was awarded by Total E&P do Brasil on behalf of the Lapa Field Consortium, which includes Total (35% stake), Shell Brasil Petróleo (30%), Repsol Sinopec Brasil (25%) and Petrobras (10%). The field is estimated to host around 459 million barrels of oil equivalent (Mboe).

“We are honoured to be selected to execute the Lapa pre-salt field project in Brazil.”

 

Under the terms of the contract, TechnipFMC will be responsible for the delivery of flexible pipes for oil production, gas lift and gas injection as well as other associated accessories. The Lapa pre-salt field will be connected to the Cidade de Caraguatatuba, a Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) unit already in operation.

The financial details of the agreement were not divulged. However, the value of the contract is expected to be between $75m and $250m.

TechnipFMC subsea president Arnaud Piéton said: “We are honoured 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.”
