Petrobras Receives Three Offers in FPSOs Tender


Brazilian state-run oil company Petrobras received offers from three consortia looking to build the company's first in-house platforms in more than seven years, the company said on Tuesday.

In a release, Petroleo Brasileiro SA, as the company is formally known, said it had received offers from consortia led by Samsung Heavy Industries Co, Daewoo Heavy Industries & Machinery Ltd and Keppel Corporation Ltd.

The platforms, named P-78 and P-79, are floating production storage and offloading units, effectively massive ships with deep-water drilling equipment, known as FPSOs.

The company is reviewing the offers and hopes to make an official selection in the first half of 2021, it said.
