Petrobras awarded GE Oil and Gas a subsea equipment supply contract for pre-salt fields worth approximately US$300 million.
The contract includes eight manifolds that will be designed with retrievable injection modules to allow water-alternated gas injection for up to four wells, and system integration with subsea controls.
“This contract illustrates how GE Oil and Gas has expanded its portfolio of solutions to support development of Brazil’s pre-salt fields,” says Rod Christie, CEO of subsea systems for GE Oil and Gas. “Our company has developed solutions that are standardized around a series of pre-approved modules to meet our customers’ specific local needs.”
The equipment will be manufactured in Brazil, GE said.
