Offshore staff

LUXEMBOURG – Petrobras has awarded Subsea 7 a $1 billion contract for pre-salt development in 2,200 m (7,218 ft) of water in Santos basin blocks BM-S-9 and BM-S-11.

The engineering, procurement, installation, and pre-commissioning of four decoupled riser systems includes four 1,900 metric ton (2,094 ton) submerged buoys at 250 m (820 ft) below the sea level buoy foundations and 27 steel catenary risers and associated pipeline end terminations.

Subsea 7 says the work will begin immediately at its Rio de Janeiro office with fabrication of the rigid pipelines to be done at a spoolbase being developed at Paranaguá, Paraná.

Offshore installation is scheduled for the second half of 2012 using Seven Oceans, Seven Seas, and Skandi Seven.
