Petrobras Expects P-52, P-54 Hulls to Arrive in March
Brazil's federal energy company Petrobras expects to receive the hulls of the P-52 semi-submersible platform and the P-54 floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel from Singapore in March, local press reported.
The hull of the US$895mn, 180,000 barrel-of-oil-a-day (b/d) P-52 semi-submersible platform should be leaving the Keppel Fels shipyard in coming days. The platform's topside will be built in Brazil's Brasfels shipyard, in which Keppel Fels has a stake.
The P-52 is scheduled to start operations at the Roncador field in 2007.
The hull of the 2.4bn-real (US$1.03bn), 180,000b/d P-54 FPSO will leave Singapore's Jurong shipyard, also in coming days, the news service reported. Work on the topside of the FPSO will be carried out in the Mauá Jurong shipyard in Brazil.
The P-54 will also produce oil in the Roncador field.
