TechnipFMC has been awarded its first integrated EPCI (iEPCI) contract in Brazil by Karoon Energy for the Patola field development, the company said on June 2.
The contract covers EPCI of subsea trees, flexible pipes and umbilicals. The project will take place at water depths of 300 m and will tie back to the existing Baúna FPSO vessel, Cidade de Itajaí.
TechnipFMC was chosen based on its recognized technical excellence and capability to deliver complete and integrated solutions. The company will leverage its assets and significant local content in Brazil, including its subsea equipment and flexible pipe plants and its logistics base.
“We are very pleased to receive our first iEPCI™ contract in Brazil for the Karoon Patola project,” Jon Landes, president subsea at TechnipFMC, said. “TechnipFMC and Karoon have a relationship based on trust and transparency, with shared principles and values. We are proud to apply our integrated expertise to help Karoon achieve its goals. We look forward to supporting Karoon in this and other developments.”
