Petrobras deploys new offshore units in Campos Basin

Petrobras has received three new maintenance and safety units (UMS), ordered as part of maintenance plan, to improve safety and efficiency of production systems.

Three new maintenance and safety units ordered by Petrobras, Cidade São João da Barra, Cidade de Cabo Frio and Cidade de Araruama  are now in place and operating in Campos Basin. The units are connected to the PNA-1 production platform in Namorado field, the PCH-2 platform in Cherne field, and the PGP-1 platform in Garoupa field, respectively.

Petrobras is running a number of revitalization campaigns involving maintenance and safety units as part of its Operational Efficiency Improvement Program (known by Portuguese acronym PROEF). To this end, it is conducting actions to guarantee the integrity of offshore production units, such as by replacing metal pipes and structures, cleaning and repairing tanks, and painting platforms. This will enable the units operating in Campos Basin to continue to produce oil and gas safely for many years, going beyond their original planned lifespan and making the most of the reservoirs’ potential.

The new maintenance and safety units have been chartered for four years, to undertake campaigns ranging from two to eight months in time, in line with the complexity of the services to be performed on each platform. They may be described as service platforms that are connected to production units via an access ramp.

These units are equipped with mechanical and electrical workshops, cranes, storage areas, areas for painting and maintenance of parts and equipment, and accommodation for all the professionals who will be performing services.

The three new maintenance and safety units have joined another four already operating in Campos Basin: Cidade de Arraial do Cabo, Cidade de Quissamã, Cidade de Casimiro de Abreu and Cidade de Carapebus. Their activities are underpinned by the operational principles of Petrobras’ exploration and production area, focusing on integrity, reliability and safety for people, facilities and the environment.
