Subsea 7 announced it has secured a contract from Total E&P do Brasil for the development of the Lapa North East field located approximately 300 kilometers off the coast of the State of São Paulo, at 2,150 meters water depth in the pre-salt Santos Basin.
The contract is worth between $50 million and $150 million, Subsea 7 said.
The work scope includes the transport, installation and pre-commissioning of 35 kilometers of flexible pipelines and 20 kilometers of umbilical, connecting five wells to the floating production, storage and offloading unit (FPSO) Cidade de Caraguatatuba. Project management and detailed engineering will commence immediately at Subsea 7’s office in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Offshore activities are due to commence in the fourth quarter 2019.
Marcelo Xavier, Subsea 7’s Vice-President Brazil, said, “This contract builds on our track record of project execution offshore Brazil and reflects our commitment to work and learn together with our client to achieve successful solutions. We look forward to strengthening our relationship with Total in Brazil, through mutually beneficial collaboration on this project and, in the long-term, on future developments.”
Total became operator of the Lapa field in Block BM-S-9A after a transfer of rights from Petrobras in January.
The field was put in production in December 2016, via the 100,000 barrel per day capacity Cidade de Caraguatatuba FPSO.
