nieuwe opdracht voor FPSO in Brazilie naar consortium van Modec. goed of slecht nieuws?? goed: omdat SBMO niet alle eitjes in de Petrobras mand moet leggen; negatief: omdat Modec blijkbaar ook in staat is dergelijke deepsea FPSO's te maken tegen een lagere prijs dan SBMO.
MODEC, Mitsui & Co, Mitsui O.S.K. Lines and Marubeni Corporation have agreed that Mitsui, MOL and Marubeni will invest in a 20-year charter providing an FPSO for use in the Carioca area of a pre-salt oil field off the coast of Brazil.
The FPSO will be named FPSO Cidade de Caraguatatuba MV27 and will be deployed to the Carioca area of the BM-S-9 block off the coast of Brazil in the third quarter of 2016. The area is part of a deepwater oil field located approximately 300 km south of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The oil is contained in the pre-salt layer approximately 5,000 m beneath the seabed.
The charter is with BM-S-9 Consortium – Petrobras (45%), BG Group (30%) and Repsol Sinopec Brasil (25%). The FPSO will be chartered for 20 years. The project is the third time the companies have collaborated to operate FPSOs for pre-salt oil fields.
The FPSO has an oil processing capacity of 100,000 barrels per day, gas processing capacity 177 million cubic feet per day and oil storage capacity 1,600,000 barrels.
