RRC signs strategic partnership with Trident Energy for decommissioning in the Campos Basin

With the mission of providing Subsea, technological and innovative solutions for the oil and gas sector, RRC Tecnologia e Inovação has just closed a 12-month consultancy contract with Trident Energy do Brasil for the decommissioning of flexible pipelines and subsea equipment that were connected to platforms P-07, P-12 and P-15, at the Pampo and Enchova hubs, located in the Campos Basin, on the coast of Rio de Janeiro.

Decommissioning is a recent challenge in Brazil. The contractual obligation of decommissioning came into force in 2020, with the Resolution approved by the National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP). The forecast is that more than BRL 40 billion will be invested by 2026 in decommissioning in the country, in which offshore and onshore equipment that reach the end of their useful life must be taken out of operation in a safe and environmentally responsible way.

This decommissioning project is one of the largest in Brazil to date and RRC will be in charge of carrying out the technical and operational consultancy for the removal of 800km of flexible pipes and other underwater materials remaining in the region, at an average depth of 150 meters .
The final objective of the project is the preparation and delivery of three Facilities Deactivation Programs (PDIs), one for each platform. Aiming at operational excellence, RRC will provide state-of-the-art simulators and software, in addition to a multidisciplinary technical team to optimize safety and mitigate environmental risks.

About RRC – RRC Tecnologia e Inovação is a pioneer in the Brazilian market in computational simulations of subsea operations using Remote Operation Vehicles (ROV) and training for professionals in the Subsea area and already has more than 4500 hours of simulations performed.

Founded in 2005, the company is the technological division of the Bravante Group, a 100% Brazilian conglomerate with more than 50 years providing services to the oil and gas industry, which operates in the areas of maritime support, port support, ship repair and environmental protection. .
