Petrobras hires operator for its GásLub project

Brazil’s Forship Engenharia closed a 36-month contract with Petrobras to build and operate the utilities plant of the GásLub complex in Itaboraí, Rio de Janeiro state, Forship said Tuesday in a press release. 

The deal includes commissioning and engineering services comprising the electric power and steam generation plants and the water and industrial waste treatment stations, with their respective electric power substations. 

The GásLub project includes a 21Mm3/d (million cubic meters per day) natural gas processing unit (UPGN) for pre-salt production. It is being built by Chinese-Brazilian consortium Kerui-Método, which has been facing troubles to conclude the undertaking. 

The offshore output will be transported to Itaboraí via the Rota 3 pipeline, which comprises a 307km offshore and a 48km onshore section. Its ultra-shallow water stretch is being concluded by McDermott, while Brazilian consortium Encalso-Concremat is installing the onshore section. 

The start of operations of the pipeline and UPGN system is scheduled for the first half of 2021. 

GásLub, formerly known as Comperj or Complexo Petroquímico do Rio de Janeiro, originally consisted of a refinery and a petrochemical plant. But after years of construction delays amid corruption scandals, Petrobras decided to only install a lubricant factory and possibly a gas-fired power plant.
