HOUSTON -- Petrobras has awarded FMC Technologies Inc. a $130-million contract to supply two subsea separation and boosting systems for use offshore Brazil in Congro and Corvina fields in the Campos basin.

FMC's scope of supply includes two subsea manifolds that will each perform production and gas lift injection for 10 wells. Other equipment includes two subsea boosting module stations, pipeline tie-in equipment, and subsea control systems. The control system incorporates an innovative subsea robotics technology, designed by Schilling Robotics, to operate the manifold and separation station valves. The equipment will be engineered and manufactured at FMC's facilities in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

"The significance of this project is it will allow demobilization of one existing production platform and replace it with two subsea separation systems," said Tore Halvorsen, FMC's senior vice president of Global Subsea Production Systems.
