Aker Solutions has secured an agreement to provide maintenance and other services for subsea facilities at Petrobras-operated oil and gas fields offshore Brazil.
The contract is for a fixed term of three years valued at BRL 435 M net of taxes (NOK 1 B) and may be extended by another three years. It covers maintenance, storage, supply of parts and technical assistance for all subsea equipment delivered by Aker Solutions to Petrobras in Brazil.
In April 2016, Aker Solutions is opening a new subsea manufacturing center in Curitiba, doubling its local production capacity. The company is also upgrading its subsea services unit in Rio das Ostras to better meet customer demand.
The contract will be managed at the base in Rio das Ostras in Rio de Janeiro, at a local content rate of 87 %.
The agreement is similar to one signed in 2011 for maintenance of equipment and other offshore services.
