PARIS -- Papa Terra BV has awarded Technip a contract to supply integrated production bundles (IPB) for the Papa-Terra field. The field is at a water depth of 1,200 m (3,937 ft) in the Campos Basin, approximately 110 km (68 mi) offshore Brazil.
The contract includes the engineering, procurement, manufacturing, and supply of 27 km (17 mi) of IPB risers and flowlines, and an electrical and monitoring module that will be installed on the FPSO P-63.
Technip’s IPB technological solution will be used in the heavy oil field to increase the temperature of produced fluid after long shut-downs in order to reduce viscosity and enable well production restart.
Technip Brazil will design and procure the electrical and monitoring module. The delivery of the modules and the IPBs are scheduled for the 1Q and 4Q 2012, respectively.
