HOUSTON -- Petrobras has awarded FMC Technologies a $75 million contract to engineer and manufacture four subsea manifolds and controls for its Roncador Module III project. The project will also incorporate FMC's all-electric technology in Brazilian waters.

FMC's scope of supply consists of two, six-slot subsea manifolds to distribute gas lift injection to 12 wells. These manifolds will also contain 12 subsea control modules that will provide electro-hydraulic functions to operate the manifolds and subsea trees.

The company will also supply two additional manifolds for water injection that will use FMC's proprietary all-electric actuators for the operation of the chokes. The equipment will be engineered and manufactured at FMC Technologies' facility in Rio de Janeiro with deliveries expected to begin in 2010.
