Seatrium Limited has won an international tender from Brazil’s National Oil Company, Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. (Petrobras), acting as operator of Atapu1 and Sepia2 consortiums, for the newbuild supply of floating production storage and offloading vessels (FPSO) platforms P-84 and P-85. With the contracts valued at approximately $11 billion, these high throughput FPSOs will be deployed in the Atapu and Sépia fields, located in the eastern part of the Santos Basin, approximately 200 km offshore of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.

The P-84 and P-85 platforms are part of Petrobras' new generation of FPSO platforms, characterised by a high production capacity that prioritise sustainable practices with innovative technologies. The P-84 and P-85 FPSOs will each have a production capacity of 225 000 bpd and gas processing capacity of 10 million Sm3/d. Both FPSOs will incorporate advanced technologies such as zero routine flaring and venting, variable speed drives and measures to control emissions and capture CO2, including an all-electric concept, which focuses on efficient power generation and increased energy efficiency to achieve a 30% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions intensity. These features will enhance operational efficiency and reduce environmental impact, showcasing Seatrium's commitment to responsible and sustainable operations.

Construction for the P-84 and P-85 FPSOs will commence in first quarter of 2025 with the final delivery expected to be in 2029.
