These high technological flexible pipes are designed to meet pre-salt challenges with water depths of up to 2,500 metres and high pressures

This contract covers the supply of around 200 kilometres of flexible pipes and associated equipment, including gas lift, gas and water injection, gas export and production lines. These high technological flexible pipes are designed to meet pre-salt challenges with water depths of up to 2,500 metres and high pressures.

“Lula Alto is a major project for Technip in Brazil,” said Adriano Novitsky, president of Technip in Brazil. “Its size contributes to improving even more the workload visibility of our manufacturing plants. In addition, the challenging technical requirements confirm again the suitability of flexible pipes to pre-salt developments and Technip's strong position in this domain.”

Technip’s operating centre in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, will perform the project management and engineering. The flexible pipes will be produced at Technip's manufacturing sites of Vitoria and Açu, Brazil. Delivery is scheduled to start in the second half of 2015.
