Prosafe informed on Saturday that the contract value is approximately $73 million (equivalent to $112,500 per day).

As explained by Prosafe, the contract award and timing are subject to a formal clarification process during which Petrobras is under no formal obligation to conclude a contract and other bidders may appeal.

A contract, if awarded, would deploy the Safe Zephyrus semi-submersible accommodation rig for safety and maintenance support offshore Brazil within 2023.

Less than a month ago, the Safe Zephyrus secured a contract extension with BP in the UK North Sea. The charter was extended through 21 December 2022.
