Petrobras hires Aker Solutions for subsea lifecycle services

Norwegian Aker Solutions has signed a framework agreement with Petrobras to provide subsea lifecycle services for the company’s oil and gas fields offshore Brazil.

The scope covers the full range of subsea lifecycle services for several Petrobras-operated fields offshore Brazil, including inspection, maintenance, repairs, upgrades and spares supply, as well as installation and commissioning services.

The agreement has a fixed period of three years and includes an option to extend the contract for two additional years.

It is effective from June and will be managed from Aker Solutions’ service base in Rio das Ostras in Rio de Janeiro.

“Brazil is a key global offshore market and we look forward to continuing our strong partnership with Petrobras,” said Maria Peralta, executive vice president and head of Aker Solutions’ subsea business.

“Aker Solutions has been present in Brazil for more than four decades and we are committed to continue to deliver our services to help Petrobras maximize the potential for their fields in the most safe, efficient and sustainable manner possible.”

Aker Solutions revealed it had during the last 25 years installed close to 240 subsea trees for Petrobras-operated fields offshore Brazil.

Last year, the Norwegian company completed its largest subsea trees project in Brazil by delivering 60 sets of subsea trees for Petrobras for pre-salt exploration.
