Fugro Provides ROV Services to Petrobras

Fugro has been hired to provide remotely operated vehicle (ROV) services to support Petrobras in its exploration and production activities following two new contract wins.

Under the two new contracts Fugro’s ROV spread will support drilling related activities, such as towing, mooring, commissioning and de-commissioning, and positioning of production and drilling units, as well as installation of subsea equipment in Petrobras oil fields.

The ROVs will be deployed in water depths of 3,000 meters on the Brazilian continental shelf.

The first contract, with the duration of 319 days, starts in the second quarter of 2018 and is being executed from the Far Santana, an anchor handling and towing support (AHTS) vessel owned by Norwegian marine contractor SolstadFarstad.

During the second contract, which starts in the third quarter of 2018, Fugro and SolstadFarstad will jointly manage operations, which will involve Fugro’s ROV being deployed from SolstadFarstad’s Far Scout AHTS offshore vessel. This contract runs for a period of one year, with an option for a further 12 months.

Andrew Seymour, Fugro’s manager for marine business in Brazil, said, “As the leading provider of ROV services in Brazil, we are delighted we can continue minimizing operational risks for Petrobras and extend Fugro’s long-term relationship with them and our vessel partners. These ROV services contract awards consolidate our position in the Brazilian offshore energy market.”
