Wilson Sons Rebocadores and Wilson Sons Agência participated in the operation of departure of platform P-68 of Jurong Aracruz Shipyard, in Espírito Santo, to the fields of Berbigão and Sururu, in the Santos Basin pre-salt. The FPSO has a processing capacity of 150,000 barrels / day of oil and 6 million cubic meters / day of gas.
The operation lasted about 12 hours and was supported by the tugs WS Antares, Hercules and Crater, the last two displaced from Rio de Janeiro to Espírito Santo. “We were very pleased with the result. It was a complex operation due to the platform’s size and sail area, being the first of its kind performed on site”, says Marcelo Knaak, commercial manager of Wilson Sons Tugs. He points out that the company has been a partner of Jurong Aracruz Shipyard since the start of the FPSO construction project, which lasted about two years.
The Group’s maritime agency business coordinated all necessary documentation with maritime authorities – Anvisa, Navy, Federal Police – to exit the platform. Last year, the Wilson Sons Agency had already made the entry of the FPSO P-67 into Guanabara Bay. “The oil and gas market is an important sector, with prospects of great growth in the coming years. We have expertise and we are preparing to meet the high demand,” says Thalita de Sá, Business Development Analyst at the company.
FPSO P-68 is expected to reach the Santos Basin in five days. The Berbigão and Sururu fields are located in concession BM-S-11A, operated by Petrobras (42.5%) in partnership with Shell Brasil (25%), Total (22.5%) and Petrogal (10%).
