New Petrobras contracts

Rolls-Royce has been awarded new contracts with a potential value of USD 651 million by Petrobras to support its production activities offshore Brazil. Rolls-Royce will supply Petrobras with 32 RB211 gas turbine power generation packages, including waste-heat recovery units, to meet the power generation requirements of eight separate floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels. The FPSOs, used for the processing of hydrocarbons and storage of oil, will operate in the petroleum rich Lula (formerly Tupi) and Guara oilfields, located in the pre-salt area of the Santos Basin off the coast of Brazil.
The new gas turbine power generation packages will be delivered in groups of four, with the first units scheduled for delivery in the first quarter of 2013. Four gas turbine generating sets will be installed on each of the eight FPSOs. To ensure that the FPSO vessels operate at peak performance levels, Rolls-Royce will also provide Petrobras with long-term services, technical support and training.
