A consortium of companies, including Fluor Corp., said it has met substantial completion on the Gaviao Branco facility in the state of Maranhao, Brazil and has turned the project over to Parnaiba Gas Natural, a Brazilian-based private gas exploration and production company, according to a press release.

The consortium — comprising Fluor Corp.; Construcap CCPS Engenharia e Comercio S.A., a privately-held Brazilian construction company and the consortium leader; and CFPS Engenharia e Projetos S.A., a joint venture of Fluor and Construcap — handled the engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning and startup of an 8.5 million cubic-meters-per-day gas gathering system in the Gaviao Branco field, as well as a 70-kilometer gas pipeline. Fluor said the project was done under “a demanding 12-month schedule.”

“The consortium leveraged the organizations’ strengths, such as Construcap’s experienced construction workforce in Brazil and Fluor’s flow assurance expertise, to deliver an optimized solution that was executed safely, on time and on budget,” said Jim Brittain, president of Fluor’s Energy and Chemicals Americas business line, in a statement.

Completion of the gathering system and pipeline put the Gaviao Branco field into commercial operation and allows for the tie-in of the Gaviao Branco Sudeste field as well as a future tie-in point for the Gaviao Caboclo and Gaviao Branco Norte.

“Completion of this schedule-driven project is a milestone for Construcap in our relationship with Fluor,” said Roberto Capobianco, president of Construcap, in a statement.

Parnaiba Gas Natural has retained the consortium to work on master planning services for upcoming developments in the Parnaiba Basin.

Fluor Corp. is a global engineering and construction firm based in Irving, Texas, with an office in Greenville.
