Technip has been awarded a contract by Petrobras for the Guara and Lula Nordeste pre-salt field development located in the Santos Basin, offshore Brazil, at a water depth of 2,250m.

The contract covers the manufacture of 24 kilometers of 6in’ gas injection flexible lines rated for 552 bars design pressure; 2 x 200m top risers designed with Technip’s innovative Teta-Clip pressure vault technology; 4 x 1,400m of intermediate and bottom risers; 18km of flowlines.

The gas injection lines will be used to re-inject produced gas into the reservoir to respect new Brazilian environmental regulation.

Frédéric Delormel, Technip Executive Vice President and COO Subsea, stated: “This very innovative solution developed by our French and Brazilian R&D teams takes Technip further to meet corrosion & fatigue requirements, which increased with pre-salt field developments.

The pipelines will be manufactured at Technip’s flexible pipe plants and delivered in two batches, the first one in 2012 and the second in the first quarter of 2013.
