The contract with FSTP Consortium (Keppel Fels and Technip), worth approximately $ 1 billion and 200 million, includes the engineering, procurement, construction and assembly of the platform (hull and process plant).

The work involves two contracts, which will be signed tomorrow. One for the supply and installation of gas compression modules, totaling $ 141 million 400 thousand, with Nuovo Pignone SpA, and one for supply, installation, operation and maintenance of power generation modules, totaling $ 139 million 780 thousand, with Rolls-Royce Energy Systems Inc. and UTC Engenharia SA. For the construction of the P-56 were hired the same company responsible for the P-51, since a copy of the project is another, which will allow the anticipation of production in South Marlin By adopting this strategy of exploitation of a project of the existing production platform will be capable of recovering the production, depending on the backlog of projects P-55 and P-57, whose bids had to be canceled due to excessive price. This repositioning of the portfolio in anticipation of the project Marlin Sul, shows the responsiveness of Petrobras in the management of assets of E & P. This strategy took into account also the utilization of the current mobilization of suppliers to reduce the time and cost of the project since it exempts the appropriateness of spending on infrastructure construction sites, hiring and training of skilled labor, among others. P-56 will be positioned at depths of 1,700 feet deep and about 124 km the coast. With a capacity to process and treat daily 170,000 barrels of liquids and 100,000 barrels of 16 º API, 6 million cubic meters of natural gas and injecting some 280,000 barrels of water in the reservoir, P-56 will operate connected to 22 wells, 11 producing oil and gas and 11 for water injection. The platform will weigh 50,000 tons, be 110 meters wide and long, 125 meters tall and is sized to operate for 25 years. This production facility, to be one of the largest of its size in the world, to enter into commercial operation in late 2010, contributing to Petrobras reaching production targets for oil and gas Strategic Planning.
