HOUSTON – InterMoor says it has been awarded a contract for the installation of the drilling and production conductors for the Papa Terra project offshore Brazil, which has Petrobras as operator and Chevron as non-operator.
InterMoor is going to be responsible for the design, procurement, fabrication and installation of 15 conductors for the project. All 15 conductors are 36-in. diameter. The company is going to fabricate all the conductors at its new 24-acre Morgan City, Louisiana, facility.
The conductors are going to be installed in water depths up to 3,937 ft (1,200 m) off the coast of Brazil in the southern Campos basin. The installation is scheduled to begin in the 4Q 2011 utilizing DOF Subsea’s construction anchor handling vessel Skandi Skolten under charter to InterMoor.
“We are proud to have signed this contract with Petrobras and proud to be part of the first TLWP (tension leg wellhead platform) in Brazil,” said InterMoor President Tom Fulton. “InterMoor has been developing its strength in the Brazil market through our local office in Rio de Janeiro and this project award confirms the dedication of our efforts to expand our opportunities in the region.”
