THE HULL OF P-68 IS COMPLETED IN RIO GRANDE AND ITS ON ITS WAY TO ESPITITO SANTO FOR INTEGRATION

 

 

The P-68 platform, which is part of the replicating FPSOs, had another construction phase completed. With the completion of the hull at the Rio Grande Shipyard, it now sails towards the Jurong shipyard, in Espírito Santo, where it will go through the process integration and installation of modules.

When fully completed, the platform will be interconnected to productive wells in two pre-salt fields, Lula Extremo Sul and Tupi South, in the Santos Basin, and will have a capacity of up to 150,000 barrels of oil per day.

The hull is 288 meters long, 54 meters wide and 31.5 meters high, with a total weight of 353,000 tons, and is the third of a kind, which included the P-66 and P-67.

Despite the delivery, which would be a reason for celebration, Ecovix, the Rio Grande Shipyard’s controller, has no reason to celebrate, since it is only a few steps away from seeking creditor protection, due to a debt of R $ 6 billion.
