Technip/Fels Setal selected by petrobras for the deepwater P-52 Platform offshore Brazil

Petrobras stated recently that it has qualified the consortium created by Technip and Fels Setal for the bid related to the construction and integration of the hull and topsides/utilities of the P-52 offshore platform, to be located in the Roncador field in the deep water of the Campos Basin.

At the same time, Petrobras has disqualified Technip/Fels Setal from the P-51 platform bid, since the invitation to bid notice prohibits the same company winning the contract for both platforms.

Technip/Fels Setal hope to conclude shortly the final negotiations and contracting of the P-52 platform.
