TechnipFMC has been awarded a significant contract by Brazilian state-run oil and gas company Petrobras for the Mero 3 HISEP project.

Under the contract, valued at more than $1bn, TechnipFMC will be responsible for the integrated engineering, procurement, construction and installation services for the project, which is situated in Brazil’s pre-salt field.

The scope of the contract includes the design, engineering, manufacturing and installation of various subsea components such as manifolds, flexible and rigid pipes, umbilicals and power distribution systems.

Additionally, TechnipFMC will provide life-of-field services.

The Mero 3 project will be the first to implement Petrobras’ patented HISEP process subsea, a technology that captures CO₂-rich dense gases directly from the well stream.

This technology moves part of the gas separation process from the topside platform to the seabed, potentially reducing greenhouse gas emissions intensity and increasing production capacity by alleviating constraints at the topside gas processing plant.
