Petrobras has launched a tender to contract operation and maintenance services for advanced bases for emergency response in the Manati field in the Camamu Basin in Bahia.
The scope includes the operation of six hydrocarbon spill response bases on the PMNT1 platform, the Manati gas pipeline and its shore-based support vessels.
Among them are one in the municipality of Valença, in the locality of Guaibim, one in Cairu (Garapuá), one in Itacaré and another in Ilhéus. The contracted company will also have to build two units in Cairu, Ilha de Boipeba, and Maraú (Campinho).
The area covered by the services comprises the southern coast of Bahia, stretching from the Bay of All Saints to the municipality of Ilhéus and estuaries and mangroves of the coast.
The proposals must be delivered by Petronect (Petrobras’ electronic shopping portal) between 21/5 and 31/5. The term of the contract will be one year, with possibility of extension.
Petrobras is the operator of the BCAM-40 consortium, with a 35% stake, in partnership with QGEP (45%), Brasoil Manati (10%) and Geopark Brasi (10%).
Located in a water depth of 35 m, the Manati field was discovered in 2000 and began to produce in 2007. The average extraction in the fourth quarter of 2017 was 5.6 million m³ / d, according to data from the QGEP .
From PMNT1, the gas produced flows by sea and by land, traveling 125 km via pipeline to the Vandemir Ferreira geophysical gas processing station in the city of São Francisco do Conde (BA).
