Petrobras has awarded Acergy a $190m contract for the Sul-Norte Capixaba Project, which is located offshore Brazil in water depths of 30-100m.

For the $240m contract, the firm will work with Odebrecht Oil & Gas on engineering, project management, procurement and fabrication services.

Acergy will install an 18in-diameter 150km rigid gas pipeline to link the Camarupim field’s gas pipeline to the Parque das Baleias complex.

Engineering services will begin immediately, while offshore installation is expected to start in late 2011.
