US-based technology solutions provider FMC Technologies has won a contract from Petrobras to supply subsea manifold systems for its pre-salt fields, located offshore Brazil.

As part of the $130m initial contract, FMC will provide three manifolds, tools, spare parts and system integration with subsea controls.

FMC will design the manifolds with retrievable injection modules to allow water alternated gas injection for up to four wells and will be installed in water depths of up to 2,500m.

FMC Technologies Subsea Technologies senior vice president Tore Halvorsen said the company will develop and deliver the customized solutions for the pre-salt fields.

"We have made significant investments in our Brazilian operations to enable large-scale product manufacturing and the development of new technologies that comply with local content requirements," Halvorsen said.

The company will manufacture the equipment in Brazil, while the development engineering and system integration testing will be conducted at its Technology Center in Rio de Janeiro.

Manifold system deliveries are scheduled to begin in 2015.
