Aker to modify Petrobras platforms
Petrobras has contracted Aker Solutions to provide maintenance and modifications services for nine platforms at oil and gas fields in the Campos basin offshore Brazil.
The three-year contract, BRL250-million-plus ($60.5-million) contract carries an option for a two-year extension.
Aker Solutions will renovate, repair, and upgrade offshore production systems for Petrobras’ Campos Basin Operational Unit (UO-BC), and will also manage the yard where replacement parts and other equipment will be fabricated.
The company will perform the work from its C.S.E. Mecânica e Instrumentação services base in Macaé, Rio de Janeiro, in which it holds a majority stake in C.S.E.
The program begins next month, with final deliveries scheduled for 2021.
