Petrobras Awards Subsea Supply Contract to Dril-Quip (Brazil)


Dril-Quip, Inc. today announced that Dril-Quip do Brasil LTDA, its wholly owned subsidiary, has been awarded a four-year contract by Petrobras, Brazil’s national oil company, for the supply of subsea wellhead systems and associated tools to be used in the drilling of deepwater wells offshore Brazil.

Based on current exchange rates and after Brazilian taxes, the contract is valued at $650 million if all of the equipment under the contract is ordered. Amounts will be included in Dril-Quip’s backlog as purchase orders are received under the contract. Dril-Quip expects to begin delivering products under the contract in the second half of 2013.

The contract is subject to customary terms and conditions for agreements of this type, including termination, extension, product inspection, local content requirements and price adjustment provisions.

Dril-Quip is a leading manufacturer of highly engineered offshore drilling and production equipment, which is well suited for use in deepwater, harsh environment and severe service applications.

66kV Offshore Wind 2015

The only networking event on 66kV array grids.

66kV Offshore Wind is a technical event for experts in the wind industry. The goal is to provide a clear path to commercial implementation of 66kV array grids. By exploring developer requirements, WTG capabilities and equipment certification, we hope to reduce both uncertainty and time to implementation for 66kV offshore wind.

The conference aims to:

  • Evaluate project requirements to select 66kV inter-arrays
  • Explore turbine requirements for use in 66kV systems
  • Review certification procedures for higher voltage equipment
  • Evaluate the technology and cost impacts on transformers, cables and switchgears
  • Understand the need for reactive power compensation in offshore substations
