Prysmian has entered into a contract with Total to provide 19 km of thermoplastic umbilicals to the Lapa field in the Santos Basin pre-salt.
The agreement, which includes the follow-up of the installation of the lines, provides for a high index of local content, with manufacturing at the company’s plant in Vila Velha (ES) and delivery in August of this year.
The company’s Sales Manager, Jeferson Werlich, pointed out that the project strengthens Prysmian’s presence with international operators. Recently the company was chosen by Equinor to provide umbilicals to the second phase of development of the Peregrino field in the Campos Basin.
“All this attests to our ability to meet the highest standards in the industry and makes us more excited to contribute to Total and its partners in Lapa to further develop the Brazilian oil sector,” he told BE Petróleo.
The Lapa field produced 27,699 thousand boed in March (22,544 bopd and 820 thousand m³ / d of natural gas), according to the latest ANP data. The extraction is done by FPSO Cidade de Caraguatatuba, which has the capacity to produce 120 thousand bopd and process 5 million m³ / d of natural gas.
