    Sembcorp Marine’s Brazilian shipyard completes Petrobras P-68 FPSO

    Sembcorp Marine’s wholly-owned and operated subsidiary Estaleiro Jurong Aracruz (EJA) has crossed a significant operational milestone with the completion of its first floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) project, the company said in its release.

    P-68, a newbuild FPSO vessel, left the shipyard today and will be deployed to the ultra-deepwater Berbigão and Sururu fields in Brazil’s Santos Basin.

    The vessel is constructed for Tupi B.V., a consortium comprising Petrobras Netherlands B.V. (“PNBV”), Total Brazil Services B.V., BG Gas Netherlands Holdings B.V. (“Shell”) and Galp Sinopec Brazil Services B.V. (“Petrogal”).

    Measuring 316m in length and 54m in width, P-68 will produce up to 150,000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD). It has a 1.6-million-barrel storage capacity and can accommodate 154 persons.

    EJA’s P-68 work scope includes fabricating six modules, pipe-racks and a flare, and integrating them on the vessel along with other free issue items. It also executed carry-over works on the FPSO’s hull, which was built by another shipyard.

    In completing the project, EJA cements its status as a premier facility in Brazil capable of taking on full engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning work for large-scale offshore projects. It also offers vessel repair and upgrade solutions.

    The 82.5ha facility has been operating in the Espirito Santo municipality of Aracruz since 2014 and employs up to 4,400 workers at peak periods.

    Besides tapping into the burgeoning local offshore oil and gas industry, EJA with its strategic location on the east coast of Brazil is able to service field developments in the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and West African sectors.
