Aqualis Offshore Wins Brazilian Contract

Norway's Aqualis Offshore announced Wednesday that it has won a contract from a 50:50 consortium between Technip and Techint in Brazil.

The contract will see Aqualis carry out marine warranty surveys for all marine operations related to the integration of the P-76 FPSO (floating production, storage and offloading) vessel at Techint's yard in the south of Brazil. The work will run until September 2016.

The P-76 FPSO unit is currently undergoing conversion from a very large crude carrier. Once completed, it will be installed at the Franco Sul Field located in the Santos Basin pre-salt area offshore Brazil. The FPSO is expected to produce 180,000 barrels of oil and 247 cubic feet of gas per day.

"The P-76 FPSO is another landmark FPSO project for the Brazilian oil industry. The unit is destined for the challenging pre-salt areas offshore Brazil and require the highest quality from everyone involved in the project. We are proud to be brought on board for such a prestigious assignment," Dr Andreas Theophanatos, director for South America at Aqualis Offshore, said.

Aqualis Offshore’s office in Rio de Janeiro will manage the contract and all associated work.
