Oceaneering International Inc. has been awarded a BOP tethering services contract offshore Brazil from Petrobras, the company said on Oct. 13. The contract duration is one-year with the option to extend for an additional year.
The scope of work includes data acquisition and real-time riser analysis for dynamic positioning rig operations for up to seven wells in water depths between 150 m and 700 m.
Oceaneering will provide eight suction piles that will be manufactured locally as well as 10 wellhead load relief (WLR) tensioners, one monitoring system to be integrated on the BOP, and one suction pile pump to install the suction piles.
An anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessel will launch and install the suction piles and tensioners. The drilling rig will be used to connect the tensioners to the BOP.
“We appreciate Petrobras’ trust in our ability to provide dependable and cost-effective technologies and services,” Daniel Nogueira, manager of Oceaneering Projects Group, said. “This award reinforces our position and track record as a high-quality service provider in Brazil. This is an amazing opportunity for Oceaneering to expand its capabilities in Brazil with BOP anchoring services.”
