The agreement has a fixed period of three years and includes an option to extend the contract for two additional years.
The scope of the agreement covers the full range of subsea lifecycle services for several Petrobras-operated fields offshore Brazil. This will include inspection, maintenance, repairs, upgrades and spares supply as well as installation and commissioning services. The framework agreement is effective from June 2021 and will be managed from Aker Solutions’ service base in Rio das Ostras in Rio de Janeiro.
“Brazil is a key global offshore market and we look forward to continuing our strong partnership with Petrobras,” said Maria Peralta, executive vice president and head of Aker Solutions' subsea business. “Aker Solutions has been present in Brazil for more than four decades and we are committed to continue to deliver our services to help Petrobras maximize the potential for their fields in the most safe, efficient and sustainable manner possible.”
Petrobras has a substantial portfolio of operated oil and gas fields in Brazil, including deepwater and pre-salt fields. Aker Solutions has during the last 25 years installed close to 240 subsea trees for Petrobras-operated fields offshore Brazil.
The award will be booked as order intake in 2Q21 in the company's Subsea segment.
