Rolls-Royce wins Campos basin power support contract
Petrobras has awarded Rolls-Royce a five-year, $138-million power services contract for oil production activities offshore Brazil.
Rolls-Royce will provide maintenance and repair services to support 15 Rolls-Royce RB211-G62 industrial gas turbine power generation units installed on four oil production platforms serving the presaltCampos basin.
These platforms, which can collectively deliver more than 500,000 b/d of oil, rely on about 375 MW of power to sustain their output.
Rolls-Royce Energy’s workshop at Macae in Brazil will support the program. Next year the company will inaugurate a new, $100 million-plus, purpose-built gas turbine package, assembly, and test facility in Santa Cruz in Rio de Janeiro state.
