Tenders promoted by international oil companies are moving the offshore logistics support market and may result in the contracting of up to five berths for boat mooring.
Equinor is seeking up to two berths to service its operations in the Campos and Santos Basins.
Shell needs a berth to support its drilling campaigns in Gato do Mato and Alto de Cabo Frio Oeste. The Anglo-Dutch company is negotiating the service with Nitshore, whose support base is in Niterói (RJ).
Total calls for a berth to support its activities in the Lapa field, where it will drill one or two wells.
In addition to these tenders, the market awaits the launch of a bid by QGEP to hire a berth to support the drilling of a new well in the Atlanta field.
The last three IOCs are now serviced by Brasco, from the Wilson Sons group, but their contracts will come to an end in the coming months.
