Petrobras signed contracts with Sete Brasil, Queiroz Galvão, Petroserv, Odebrecht, Odfjell and Seadrill for the chartering and operation of 12 floating drilling platforms to be built in Brazil with national content between 55 and 65 percent.


 After construction, the rigs will be chartered by Petrobras for 15 years. These 12 rigs are part of a package of 21 platforms negotiated with Sete Brasil, according to a press release from Petrobras.

Of the six semi-submersible platforms to be built by Estaleiro BrasFELS in Angra dos Reis (RJ), three will be operated by Queiroz Galvão, two by Petroserv and one by Odebrecht.

The other six will be drilling vessels to be built by Estaleiro Jurong Aracruz (ES). Three will be operated by Odfjell and the other three by Seadrill.
 
Petrobras has performed a prior analysis of the shipyards for their capacity to meet contractual requirements for the construction of these rigs, which included deadlines and minimum content ratios. Various aspects were verified, such as facilities, commitment with suppliers of goods and equipment, environmental permits, HSE management, and contract management, as well as legal and financial aspects.

The 12 units will be delivered from 2016 and will be used for drilling wells in the Santos Basin pre-salt cluster, including the onerous assignment areas. They can operate at depths of up to 3,000 meters, with a drilling capacity of 10,000 meters, according to Petrobras.
