Operations offshore Brazil are expected to begin in 2Q 2022.
The Brazilian-registered vessel will mainly be deployed in ultra-deepwater of up to 3,000 m (9,842 ft).
Jonathan Landes, president, Subsea at TechnipFMC, said: “Coral do Atlântico is the third of our pipelay support vessels to be contracted via a long-term charter by Petrobras this year, indicating rising demand in the Brazilian market for flexibles. Coral do Atlântico’s versatility and ability to work in deep or shallow water is a large part of the vessel’s appeal.”
According to TechnipFMC, Petrobras has consistently awarded the Coral do Atlântico its highest rating for operational performance, quality of work, and health, safety and environment.
