Under the four-year frame agreement, Technip will offer services which include basic and detailed design, documentation update, engineering consulting, planning, control and execution supplies for 13 offshore platforms.

Technip has previously contracts on some of the projects for designing and constructing the topsides of three of Petrobras’ deepwater production semis which include P-51, P-52 and P-56.

The engineering firm’s operating center in Rio de Janeiro will be responsible for project management, engineering and procurement.

Technip senior vice president of onshore Latin America & offshore Brazil Jose Jorge Araujo said, "This award reasserts Technip in Brazil’s competitiveness as a top-class services provider and reinforces our long-term commitment to Petrobras’ key projects."

UO-RIO currently operates 15 offshore platforms and manages six concessions situated in deep and ultra-deep Campos Basin waters, where the Albacora Leste, Barracuda, Caratinga, Marlim Leste, Marlim Sul, and Roncador fields are located.
