Technip Pipes for Lula Alto (Brazil)

Vitória - Flexible pipe manufacturing facility

Technip has won a contract from Tupi BV, a consortium composed of Petrobras Netherland BV (PNBV, 65%), BG (25%) and Galp (10%), for the ongoing development of the Lula Alto field, located in the Santos Basin pre-salt area, Brazil.

This contract covers the supply of around 200 kilometers of flexible pipes and associated equipment, including gas lift, gas and water injection, gas export and production lines.

According to Technip, these high technological flexible pipes are designed to meet pre-salt challenges with water depths of up to 2,500 meters and high pressures.

Technip’s operating center in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, will perform the project management and engineering. The flexible pipes will be produced at Technip’s manufacturing sites of Vitoria and Açu, Brazil. Delivery is scheduled to start in the second half of 2015.

Adriano Novitsky, President of Technip in Brazil, commented: “Lula Alto is a major project for Technip in Brazil. Its size contributes to improving even more the workload visibility of our manufacturing plants. In addition, the challenging technical requirements confirm again the suitability of flexible pipes to pre-salt developments and Technip’s strong position in this domain.”
