Aqualis Offshore awarded FPSO contract in Brazil

Aqualis Offshore, part of Oslo-listed Aqualis ASA, has won a contract for an FPSO project in Brazil. Contract value is undisclosed.

A 50/50 consortium between Technip and Techint has chosen Aqualis Offshore as marine warranty surveyor for all marine operations related to the integration of the P-76 FPSO (floating production storage and offloading) unit at Techint’s yard in the south of Brazil. Aqualis Offshore’s work scope runs until September 2016. 

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 180,000 barrels of oil and 7 million cubic meters of gas per day.

Aqualis Offshore’s office in Rio de Janeiro will manage the contract and all associated work. The company is a specialized marine and offshore engineering consultancy focusing on the shallow and deepwater segments of the offshore oil, gas, and wind industries.
