The Petrobras Capixaba North Terminal - TNC is located in the state of Espirito Santo, in Brazil and is being built to receive the heavy and high viscosity oil produced onshore in the Fazenda Alegre field. This oil shall be heated prior to be pumped into the pipelines and it will be exported through a monobuoy and a tanker system. The two export pipelines are being laid to connect the onshore Terminal to a subsea PLEM to be installed under the monobuoy. The pipelines and PLEM were designed to operate with oil containing H2S in cyclic high temperature. This paper addresses the special concerns defined by the design activity to cope with the TNC operation conditions. It also focuses the modifications imposed to the installation process to fulfill the design and operation requirements.
