Oilfield services giant TechnipFMC has secured an engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract from TotalEnergies for the Lapa North East field in the Santos basin offshore Brazil.

Under the contract, TechnipFMC is tasked with reconfiguring and installing umbilicals and flexible pipes in a new configuration to further increase the field’s production capacity.

TechnipFMC Subsea president Jonathan Landes said: “The Brazilian offshore market is becoming more diverse with regard to work scope and customer opportunity. 

“On Lapa North East, we are working with a valued client with whom we have built a trusted relationship. By offering the flexibility of a phased campaign, we are helping TotalEnergies accelerate its schedule and begin production sooner.”

TechnipFMC said the contract is valued between $75m and $250m.

The Lapa oil and gas field is located approximately 300km off the coast of the São Paulo state, at a water depth of nearly 2,150m in the pre-salt Santos basin.

It started production in December 2016 through the 100,000 barrel per day capacity Cidade de Caraguatatuba Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) unit.

As of 2020, TotalEnergies owned a 45% stake in the Lapa field. Its consortium partners include Shell (30%), Repsol Sinopec (25%), and Petrobras (10%).

In 2019, Total E&P do Brasil selected Subsea 7 for the development of the Lapa North East field in Brazil.

Subsea 7 was responsible for the transportation, installation, and pre-commissioning of 35km of flexible pipelines, as well as 20km of umbilicals, connecting five wells to the FPSO unit Cidade de Caraguatatuba.

Earlier this year, TechnipFMC secured an integrated EPCI contract from Equinor for the Smørbukk Nord development in the Norwegian Sea.
