Monday, August 12, 2013

The Technip & DOP joint venture has been awarded 8 contracts by Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. (Petrobras) to cover the construction of 4 new pipelay support vessels (PLSVs) and operation in Brazilian waters to install flexible pipes. The combined value for Technip is approximately €1.35 billion.

Two of the PLSVs will have a 300-ton laying tension capacity and will be fabricated in Brazil with a high national content. The other two vessels will be designed to achieve a 650-ton laying tension capacity, thus enabling the installation of large diameter flexible pipes in ultra-deepwater environments, such as the Brazilian pre-salt. Vard Holdings Limited (“VARD”), one of the major global designers and shipbuilders of offshore and specialized vessels, will be in charge of the design and construction of the four PLSVs.

Under the Technip/DOF joint venture agreement, Technip will manage flexible pipelay and DOF will be responsible for marine operations. Delivery of the PLSVs is scheduled for 2016-2017. Contracts will last eight years from start of operations, and could be renewed for another eight-year period.

Frédéric Delormel, Technip’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Subsea, said: “This strategic contract reinforces our subsea leadership in Brazil and our long-term relationship with Petrobras. We are confident that these new state-of-the-art PLSVs, including two with the most important flexible pipelay tension capacity in the world - 650 tons - will be key assets for our client to successfully achieve its projects offshore Brazil.”
