Petrobras books Fugro for IRM services

Petrobras has awarded Fugro with a three-year contract for subsea inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) services in Brazil.

The contract is set to begin in Q4 2021 and will be carried out from Fugro Aquarius using two Fugro-built 3000-meter work-class remotely operated vehicles (ROVs). 

The award follows the completion of a previous four-year contract for similar services aboard the same vessel.

During the previous contract, Fugro said it had accomplished more than 20,000 hours of successful ROV operations for Petrobras, helping to unlock insights from Geo-data about the condition of existing assets and the surrounding environment for oil and gas operations.

“Fugro is very pleased to receive this latest award, which shows once again our commitment to client focus. Our proven delivery excellence, together with the fuel efficiency of the Fugro Aquarius, allowed us to put forth a highly competitive commercial offer meeting all technical requirements of the tender,” said Rogerio Carvalho, country manager of Fugro Brazil.

“We look forward to continuing our success with Petrobras on this new contract and to consolidating our position within the Brazilian IRM ROV market, which has nearly doubled in capacity over the last year.”
