Petrobras awards contract to Fugro in Brazil

Brazil’s state-run oil company Petrobras has awarded a further two-year contract to Fugro, a multinational geotechnical, survey, subsea and geoscience services company with numerous locations throughout the Americas, to provide comprehensive inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) and pipeline inspection services in Brazil.

This new award follows Fugro’s successful completion of an initial 12-month contract for the oil major, after taking delivery of the new-build vessel Fugro Aquarius.

Built specifically for the Brazilian market by Wilson Sons shipyard in São Paulo, Fugro Aquarius is an 83-meter, DP-2 ROV support vessel. “This new contract strengthens our position in the Brazilian market, despite the challenging market conditions, and reinforces our ability to provide these services to clients such as Petrobras,” said Andrew Seymour, Fugro’s manager for marine business in Brazil.
