FPSO Almirante Barroso MV32

This will be the 5th FPSO deployed at the Búzios field, however it is the first chartered production unit for the region. Búzios is one of the offshore oil and gas fields in Brazil which forms part of the Transfer of Rights agreement signed in 2010. The Búzios field is 100% operated by Petrobras and is situated 180 km off the coast of Rio de Janeiro, in the giant “pre-salt” region of the Santos Basin, Brazil, at a water depth approximately 1,900 m.

MODEC is responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction, mobilization chartering and operations of the FPSO, including topsides processing equipment as well as hull and marine systems. SOFEC, Inc., a MODEC group company, will design and supply the spread mooring system for the floating unit.

The FPSO will be capable of processing 150,000 barrels of crude oil per day, 212 million standard cubic feet of gas per day, 240,000 barrels of water injection per day and will have minimum storage capacity of 1,400,000 barrels of crude oil. The first oil production by the FPSO is planned for 2022.

This is the 15th FPSO/FSO vessel which MODEC will provide in Brazil, as well as MODEC’s 8th FPSO in the “pre-salt” following the FPSO Cidade de Angra dos Reis MV22, the FPSO Cidade de Sâo Paulo MV23, the FPSO Cidade de Mangaratiba MV24, the FPSO Cidade de Itaguaí MV26, the FPSO Cidade de Caraguatatuba MV27, as well as our two latest units, the FPSO Carioca MV30 and FPSO Guanabara MV31, currently under construction.

The Búzios 5 FPSO will be delivered with Brazilian local content, following the successful experience of our other projects in the country.
