Comperj in Itaboraí

Works postponed because Petrobras and the companies in the dispute in the UPGN bids at COMPERJ did not reach an agreement on contract values

[supsystic-social-sharing id='1′]Unfortunately the decision on the works of Comperj was suspended again. Of the 25 companies that submitted proposals, only 4 meet Petrobras' standards, namely: Toyo, Fluor, Cobra and Kervi.(Click here to learn more about these companies). The state has set a base value of 2 billion reais, and that's what's causing this deadlock and delays. It turns out that sector experts and the companies themselves say that these values will not be enough to carry the work through to the end.

intense discussions

At the time this news was released by the mainstream media and on the main social portals, there were many discussions between why the rule Petrobras imposed, is that Brazilian companies were prohibited from participating in public tenders for works.

As these companies do not have infrastructure in the national territory, partnerships between Brazilian firms will be inevitable. Remembering that all the companies that drafted their proposals are globally renowned and of good reputation. Specialists and engineers who are directly related to the project say that price adjustments should be made as soon as possible.

Projections of the Work

After resolving this impasse, the works will start in the first quarter of 2018. It is extremely necessary that the construction of this UPGN ends in 2020 so that there is no reduction in the productivity of the pre-salt fields, since this work is necessary for the flow of these active.
