Award for Subsea 7
Subsea 7’s Integrated Remote Technology
(IRT) group today announced a recent award from
Petrobras for the provision of oceanographic services
along ten pre-determined Brazilian coastal sites.
The award is placed in the region of US$2.5M and
began on 1st October 2004 for 550 days with a
possible extension of an equal period.
The services provided by Subsea 7 will supply
Petrobras with the knowledge of the coastal dynamics
at the specified sites for future maritime installation
projects. The project will take place within ten
shore sites, in water depths to 40 metres, situated
between the Brazilian northeast and south coastal
regions; five of those sites will have wave and
current measurements taken.
Monthly site visits are scheduled for equipment
maintenance, oceanographic data retrieval and
shore profiling. The job will employ boats of
opportunity hired locally in Brazil.
Victor Bomfim, Subsea 7’s Vice President
for Brazil commented, “We are pleased to
be of service to Petrobras again, remaining as
the supplier of choice for oceanographic services
in Brazil. This is an interesting job which will
provide Petrobras with invaluable information
for future projects”.
