Petrobras releases drilling rig contract bidding process

Offshore staff

RIO DE JANEIRO – Petrobras has approved the bidding process to award contracts for multiple offshore drilling rigs to be built in Brazil. Each rig will get a leasing contract with the successful bidder and an operation service contract.

Companies can bid for one or more rigs up to a total of 21 units. Certification of minimum domestic content is required.

Petrobras says this is part of its plan to contract as many as 28 new ultra-deepwater drilling rigs for, among other things, pre-salt field exploration.

A contract for the first batch of seven rigs was announced this February by Petrobras.
