Petrobras is building a new platform with a capacity to process 180,000 barrels of oil per day and 7.2 million cubic meters of gas per day. The platform is an FPSO type, a floating unit that produces, stores, and transfers oil. The delivery is scheduled for 2025. SAIPEM & DSME had been awarded USD 2.3bn for the supply of P-79 to be installed in Búzios field, in the Santos Basin pre-salt area. In the development of the EPC, SAIPEM awarded Baker Hughes over 250 Consolidated™ Pressure Relief Valves including high pressure API 10/15k valves. In addition, it is currently bidding the second batch of Pressure Relief Valves including more than 10 x API valves. This is a great success from its Team which continue building references in the very competitive Offshore segment.
“We are thrilled to continue to support customers such as Petrobras, who are looking for full portfolio solutions that include over 250 safety relief valves for offshore usage, including valves designed for API 10,000 PSI pressure rating. Our full line of products and manufacturing test capabilities have allowed us to offer full solutions to customers looking for the latest advances in over-pressure protection,” states Matt Byers, Senior Product Line Leader for Consolidated Pressure Relief Valves.
