Spotlight: Petrobras’ upstream tenders

Petrobras is close to launching the tender for the contracting of FPSO P-81 for its Sergipe deepwater (SEAP) project, off Brazil’s northeast coast, a source close to the matter told BNamericas. 

The first auction was canceled after the state-run oil firm disqualified Ocyan’s bid. 

SEAP involves the installation of two FPSOs capable of producing 120,000b/d of oil and processing 8Mm3/d of natural gas – starting in 2026. 

As in the previous tender, Petrobras is expected to offer suppliers the option to bid for the two platforms. 

However, this time the units are likely to be contracted under the chartering model, not the BOT (build, operate and transfer) or EPC systems. 

Meanwhile, Petrobras is carrying out a series of other upstream tenders. 

Among them is the contracting process for the Albacora field revitalization FPSO. The tender is available on Petrobras’ procurement website Petronect, under ID number 7003888184, and the deadline for the presentation of bids is February 13. 

Three tenders involving offshore support vessels are underway, for the chartering of up to two anchor handlers (AHTS), up to four oil spill recovery vessels (OSRV) and up to 20 platform supply vessels (PSVs). 

Their ID numbers are 7003957481, 7003957495 and 7003942677, respectively. The deadlines are November 30, December 1 and November 24, in the same order.
