Peterson enters partnership for development of Brazilian terminal
Itaoca Terminal Marítimo and energy logistics provider Peterson have announced a partnership and consulting agreement for the development of the Itaoca project.
The Itaoca Offshore project will be a private terminal located in Itapemirim, in the Espírito Santo state in southeast Brazil, designed to provide logistical support to the supply chain for the exploration and production of offshore oil and gas.
Peterson said earlier this week that the development included ten mooring berths and a service pier of 300 meters, a continental storage area with more than 600,000 square meters. The company added that the construction of the project was expected to start in 2020.
According to the company, the project is in a strategic location for operators who have acquired or expanded assets in the Espirito Santo basins and the northern portion of the Campos Basin.
Álvaro de Oliveira Jr., COO of Itaoca Offshore, said: “Peterson is an international port operator with extensive experience in the oil and gas industry and a vast portfolio of clients, making them the ideal partner for the preconstruction and construction phase of Itaoca Offshore.”
This collaboration will support the planning, design, and commercialization of the initial development of Itaoca. As co-managers of the port and logistics center, Peterson will provide operational support for the strategic planning, facilities, and management of Itaoca Offshore, while advising on the commercialization and development of the operational layout.
Erwin Kooij, CEO of Peterson Offshore, added: “With Itaoca’s strategic location, we have identified an opportunity for greater efficiency for transporting equipment and consumables to offshore platforms in Brazil.”
