The wet Christmas and tree suppliers are looking forward to it. Petrobras’ supply teams are finalizing all the details to place on the market the bid for the purchase of 38 trees for the phases that will come in Campo de Buzios, in the Santos Basin. The winning company or the winning companies – the business model is not yet ready – will be responsible for the equipment installations, in addition to leaving them ready for operations. Petrobras’ order should be placed by the end of this year.
In this model, Petrobras passed on to the construction companies of this equipment the responsibility to invest in the tools necessary for operations. There are criticisms in this regard, because in the proposals, the prices would be high, running the risk of keeping the tools unused, paying the depreciation of the equipment, at the end of the contract, in case they are unable to sell other contracts. Petrobras will also order flexible pipelines and wellheads in the coming months.
