GE Lands Equipment Orders Offshore Brazil
GE's drilling & production business has been awarded two contracts totaling more than $120 million by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering.
Under the first contract, GE will supply a blowout preventer (BOP) stack and controls system, to be installed on a Petroserv-owned drillship for oil and gas production activities offshore Brazil.
In addition, GE has been selected to supply two complete drilling packages to be installed on Odebrecht Oil & Gas owned drill-ships, each including a 10,000-foot riser system and BOP stacks and controls.
Sam Aquillano, vice president—drilling & production for GE Oil & Gas said, "We are delighted to have been selected by DSME to fulfill these important Petroserv and Odebrecht oil and gas equipment orders. The awards demonstrate our ability to meet DSME's state-of-the-art technology specifications and exceed high expectations regarding the delivery of large, complex equipment orders against compressed timeframes. We are geared up to execute these projects that strengthen our relationship with DSME."
GE Oil & Gas manufacturing plants in Houston, Texas, and Singapore will jointly manufacture the equipment for these orders, with deliveries scheduled between October 2010 and November 2011.
