The initial contract signed between Ocyan and Petrobras is expected to be finalized 4 years after the start of services. However, if the Brazilian state-owned company finds that the FPSO offshore platforms need even more works by the company Ocyan, both companies will be able to continue the partnership for another 2 years. This is an essential contract for the segment, as it will help the company's offshore maintenance and services business to double in size and consolidate its leadership position in Brazil again.

In this way, Vinicius Castilho, director responsible for Ocyan's Offshore Maintenance and Services business, highlights: “We have reached a level of expression within the offshore maintenance and services chain. Ocyan has been evolving and the results appear with the three contracts signed since the beginning of last year. Today we have a relevant representation in terms of market share in Brazil, with around 15% to 20% in relation to large global contracts, especially when we talk about the Santos Basin, where we will have a large presence.

Petrobras' FPSO-type offshore production platforms will benefit from repair works and assembly services over the next 4 years

Petrobras was very assertive in its choice of company to provide services to FPSO-type offshore platforms, since Ocyan specializes in this type of production. Thus, among the services that will be provided by the company, the main ones are maintenance and repair of the units. More specifically, Ocyan will work in the planning and execution of boilermaking, welding, painting, electrical, instrumentation and maintenance services for offshore equipment.

The offshore replicants P-66, P-67, P-68, P-69 and P-70 are currently located in the region of Tupi, Berbigão and Atapu. And, due to the capacity to individually produce 150 thousand bpd and compress 6 million m³/day of gas each, Petrobras needs to guarantee more efficiency and safety in these operations. In this way, the contract with Ocyan will be essential for the proper maintenance of the FPSO platforms over the next 4 years.

Both companies celebrated the possibility of collaboration during these 4 years provided for in the contract and stated that they were committed to guaranteeing the best partnership in that time. With this, Ocyan expands more and more its portfolio in Brazil, while Petrobras takes new directions in offshore production.
