In 2011 and 2013 Petrobras awarded SNM two contracts totaling $4.1 billion in value to build and operate six PLSVs for deepwater flexible pipelay.
Sapura Diamante, Sapura Topázio, and Sapura Ônix are already in service.
As with the previous vessels, Sapura Jade is equipped with a 550-metric ton (606-ton) vertical (tiltable) lay system for deployment of a range of flexible products in up to 3,000 m (9,842 ft) water depth for Petrobras’ presalt developments.
SapuraKencana’s Australian subsidiary, Total Marine Technology, supplied the vessel’s ROVs.
