Petrobras to contract well completion services


Petrobras is promoting two bids to contract goods and services for completing wells.

One of them provides for lower completion installation using a vertical, directional or sub-horizontal well. The scope includes technical consulting, preparation and supply of tools, assembly, testing, operation, inspection and maintenance of equipment.

In addition, the contractor will be responsible for the logistics of equipment and personnel, from ports and airports in the South, Southeast and Northeast designated by Petrobras.

The opening of commercial proposals is scheduled for the 13th.

Petrobras has at least six lower completion contracts in effect. Two of them are serviced by Halliburton, one of which is worth US $ 2.4 million and is expected to end in July and another one of R $ 12.8 million, ending in December.

Another two are with Superior Energy: a global one worth US $ 11 million and another related to the BM-S-11 block, where Lula field is located (US $ 4.2 million). Both are valid until 2021.

They complete the list with BHGE, which accounts for a R $ 2 million agreement, due in October, and Weatherford (US $ 5.8 million / 2021).

The other competition is aimed at the acquisition of services using DPR (Drill Pipe Riser) completion systems capable of withstanding pressures of up to 10,000 psi in water depths of up to 2,500 m.

Originally scheduled for December 21 last year, the delivery of proposals is scheduled for March 15.

The only DPR contract registered in Petrobras’ public base of contracts is one from Weatherford, in the amount of R $ 632 million. Started in 2015, it is expected to close in May next year.

Last November, the company announced the signing of a four-year contract, with an optional extension of one year, to provide drilling pipe risers (DPR) intervention systems and other services with the Brazilian oil company.
