The modules are to be constructed in Brazil for pre-salt projects (a geophysical layer) in Santos Basin blocks BM-S-9 and BM-S-11.  The contracts will be signed in the next few days.

The following companies will be awarded contracts: DM Construtora de Obras Ltda/TKK Engenharia Ltda, IESA Oleo e Gas S.A., Tome Engenharia S.A./Ferrostaal Industrieanlagen GmbH, Keppel FELS do Brasil S.A., Jurong do Brasil Prestação de Serviços Ltda and Mendes Jr Trading Engenharia S.A./OSX Construção Naval S.A.
