ODEBRECHT to Delivery the first FPSO to Libra in 2017.


The FPSO will be based in the giant, Petrobras-operated Libra
field, offshore Brazil, at a water depth of approximately 2,500
meters.

The consortium between McDermott and a consortium partner


has been awarded the SURF engineering, product supply and
installation scope for the Atlanta Early Production System (EPS)
in the Santos Basin offshore Brazil by Brazilian exploration and
production company Queiroz Galvo Explorao e Produo
S.A. (QGEP).

Subsea 7 S.A. has won a $200 million two years long


contract with Petrobras in Brazil.
The contract is for the installation of flexible lines for Petrobras
projects using Subsea 7s construction and flex-lay vessel Seven
Seas, on a day-rate basis.
Offshore projects in Brazil that are or will

Technip has been awarded a contract from Tupi BV, a


consortium composed of Petrobras Netherland BV, BG and
Galp, for the ongoing development of the Lula Alto field,
located in the Santos Basin pre-salt area, Brazil.
This contract covers the supply of around 200 kilometers of
flexible pipes and associated equipment, including gas lift, gas
and water injection, gas export and production lines.

Statoil to install a WHP at Peregrino Field. Plan of development


was submitted to Brazilian authorities in January 2015 and the
production is expected to start in the end of the decade.

Petrobras launches tenders for Santos basin floaters. Proposals


are for chartering of FPSOs for Libra and Sepia in December
2015.
Offshore projects in Brazil that are or will

Some Dutch companies to invest in Brazil: Shell, SBM Offshore,


Boskails, Dockwise, Atlas Professionals, Veth Propulsions,
Loggers, Netherlands Maritime Technology, Zaroni Advocados,
Control Union and Ampelmann.

The P-76 FPSO unit is currently undergoing conversion from a


VLCC tanker. 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 150,000 barrels of oil
and 7 million cubic meters of gas per day.

Agreement between Petrobras and SeteBrasil guarantee the


building of 19 rigs.
HEAVY LIFT VESSEL DEMAND - forward-looking
PETROBRAS Decommissioning program for platform
and subsea equipment

From 1970 to 2000, only 7 fixed platforms


were decommissioned

Average age of fixed platforms: > 25


years

Most of them with life cycle expired

Hundreds of subsea equipment to be


decommissioned

Petrobras funded a study of


subsea decommissioning practices

High pressure from environmental


authorities

Decom designs should start next year
