Maersk wins EPCI contract for Mero 2 project in Brazil
Libra Consortium has contracted Maersk Supply Service for the pre-lay of the mooring system for a newbuild FPSO in Brazil.
The project comprises engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) work at the Mero 2 project and will be carried out over 2021 and 2022.
The scope of work includes pre-laying 24 23-meter long torpedo anchors, each weighing 120 tonnes, in 2,000 meters of water depth offshore Rio De Janeiro.
Maersk will be responsible for all activities from engineering, procurement and offshore execution.
“This is one of the biggest projects of its kind to be awarded this year, and we are very proud to have won it. With this contract, we will be ramping up our activities in Brazil significantly and will be developing further our office in Rio de Janeiro“, said Rafael Thome, managing director for Maersk Supply Service in Latin America.
“We look forward to working closely with Petrobras as the lead operator for Libra Consortium, and enhancing our solutions capabilities in the Brazilian market”.
To remind, in August 2020 Petrobras awarded TechnipFMC with an EPCI contract for the pre-salt Mero field, located in the Santos Basin in Brazil.
Mero field is operated by the Libra Consortium consisting of Petrobras, Shell Brasil, Total, CNPC, CNOOC and Pré-sal Petróleo SA (PPSA).
