Shipyard wins contract in Brazil for services on the P-69 and gas tanker

With a budget of 96 million to carry out P-69 carry over activities, the Keppel Brasil shipyard has latent potential for hiring.

[supsystic-social-sharing id='1′]Petrobras and Sofec have just signed a contract for services on the P-69 platform for carry-over services, coupling of machinery to the hull, nautical equipment and cable system. The lucky shipyard that won this work was Keppel. This unit is part of the Tupi consortium, which comprise Petrobras and Petrogal do Brasil.

This unit is scheduled to be delivered in 2018, in fact, Keppel was previously hired to integrate, test and commission the P-69 topside capsules. Keppel Fels has already managed to manufacture them, just needing to integrate and commission. Upon delivery, it will be able to process over 146 barrels of oil every day and 6 million m³ of gas as well.

Regarding the contract signed with SOFEC, the forecast is to manufacture tower mooring devices for a new unit that is coming around. According to the information, this vessel will be of liquefied gas (FLNG) and it is destined to carry out operations in the sedimentary basin of Mozambique. The expected start is in 2018 with services until 2020.

In view of these 2 contracts, naturally Keppels Fels Brasil will need qualified labor, and we know that this is not lacking here in Brazil. Is this a prelude to the recovery of the Brazilian naval sector? There were 4 long years of economic recession due to the most destructive financial crisis that hit the country, but many contracts are being closed. The 2017 oil auctions were successful, the largest companies in the world will produce in the country next year, the revitalization of mature fields in the Campos Basin and a new Petrobras tender that will take place in 2018. So get ready and don't hold back with luck, make your own. Don't forget to join our job groups on Whatsapp and Telegram, we still have openings.
