After announcing the postponement of the Parque das Baleias Integrated Project for about a year, Petrobras will begin this Monday afternoon the new bidding process for contracting the enterprise’s FPSO. The start of delivery of proposals for construction and chartering of the vessel will begin today at 14:00 hours. The calendar foresees that the opening of the bidders’ envelopes will take place on March 17th of next year.
The new Petrobras platform vessel will have the capacity to process 100,000 barrels of oil per day. With the postponement of the integrated project of Parque das Baleias, announced by Petrobrás last week, the start of operation and the first oil of the platform are scheduled for 2024. But the part of the scope of the project that foresees, in 2022, the relocation of the platforms remains in operation remains.
The area’s integrated project aims to optimize the oil and gas recovery factor, by improving the current drainage network of the enterprise. Parque das Baleias is made up of the fields of Jubarte, Anã Baleia, Cachalote, Caxaréu and Pirambú, in the Campos Basin, on the coast of Espírito Santo. It was there that the first well in Brazil’s pre-salt began production in 2008. The complete bidding documentation for the new FPSO (7003201466) is available on the Petronect website.
