Aqualis Offshore to monitor P-76 FPSO integration

Aqualis Offshore, part of Oslo-listed Aqualis ASA, has won a contract for an FPSO project in Brazil.

A 50/50 consortium between Technip and Techint has chosen Aqualis Offshore as marine warranty surveyor for all marine operations related to the integration of the P-76 FPSO (floating production storage and offloading) unit at Techint’s yard in the south of Brazil. Aqualis Offshore’s work scope runs until September 2016.

The P-76 FPSO unit is currently undergoing conversion from a VLCC tanker. Once completed it will be installed at the Franco Sul Field located in the Santos Basin pre-salt area offshore Brazil. The FPSO is expected to produce 180,000 barrels of oil and 7 million cubic meters of gas per day.

 “The P-76 FPSO is another landmark FPSO project for the Brazilian oil industry. The unit is destined for the challenging pre-salt areas offshore Brazil and require the highest quality from everyone involved in the project. We are proud to be brought on board for such a prestigious assignment” says Dr Andreas Theophanatos, director for South America, Aqualis Offshore.

Aqualis Offshore’s office in Rio de Janeiro will manage the contract and all associated work.
