Saipem has been awarded a contract by Petrobras for the installation of a rigid riser-based subsea system to serve the Búzios pre-salt project.

The installation will take place in water depths from 1,537 to 2,190 metres offshore the state of Rio de Janeiro.

The project awarded to Saipem includes the engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) of steel lazy wave risers (SLWR) and associated flowlines between 15 wells and the floating production storage and offloading vessel (FPSO) Búzios-5. In particular, the scope of work includes five production and five injection risers and flowlines for a total length of 59 kilometres, a 16-kilometre-long gas export line to be connected to an existing pipeline, 11 rigid jumpers and 21 foundation subsea structures (risers and PLETs).

Saipem will utilise the installation vessel FDS for all the subsea works.
