AMEC Wins FPSO Contract Offshore Brazil

Sunday, February 07, 2010

AMEC announced that it has been selected by Brazilian company QUIP to perform basic engineering services for the topsides of the P-63 floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, to be operated on behalf of Petrobras, Brazil’s national oil company.

The contract, the value of which has not been announced, begins immediately and will run until mid-2010.

The P63 FPSO will develop the Papa Terra heavy oil field in the Campos Basin, offshore Brazil. The field is located about 68 miles (110 kilometers) off Rio de Janeiro in water depths of up to 3,940 feet (1,200 meters).  

“We are very pleased to continue our collaboration with QUIP and Petrobras,” said Terri Ivers, president of AMEC’s Houston-based oil and gas business. “AMEC has completed similar project work in the region, including Petrobras’ P-7 and P-9 semisubmersibles, and their P-19 and P-31 FPSO vessels. This award further strengthens AMEC’s position and experience portfolio in the development of deepwater facilities following on from recent awards in the Gulf of Mexico and deepwater Angola.”

The P-63 FPSO will have about 16 topsides modules with a total weight of over 14,000 metric tons. The topsides facilities include three oil processing modules, one gas compression module, three electrical power generation modules, two water treating and injection modules, one electrical building module, three utilities modules, one flare system module and two manifold modules. In addition, a pipe rack over 200 meters long will be designed to incorporate a material handling trolley.

The FPSO topsides facilities will be designed to process approximately 140,000 barrels per day (BPD) of crude oil, 35 million standard cubic feet per day of gas and 325,000 BPD of produced water.  Facilities to inject approximately 340,000 BPD of seawater are also included.

Engineering for the P-63 FPSO topsides will be managed from AMEC’s Houston offices.  Fabrication and integration will be conducted at QUIP’s facility in Rio Grande, Brazil.
