HUNTSVILLE, Alabama -- Petrobras plans to standardize on Intergraph's offshore engineering and management software for the 3D design, production, and life cycle optimization of its offshore platforms and FPSOs.

Petrobras will completely adopt SmartPlant 3D modeling and visualization, engineering, and schematics, information and materials management, and project controls solutions to enable the company to more quickly and efficiently develop, operate, and maintain its fixed offshore drilling platforms, semisubmersibles, and FPSOs.

Petrobras has already used Intergraph solutions for 10 FPSOs, four semisubmersible floating production platforms, one gas platform, and one re-pumping platform. Sisgraph, Intergraph's Brazil-based distribution partner, will continue to support Intergraph offshore engineering solutions for Petrobras.
