French oilfield services provider Technip has informed today that its vessel Estrela do Mar (eng. Starfish) has kicked off operations in Brazil.
Technip reported through its Facebook page that the multi-purpose offshore vessel Estrela do Mar arrived in Brazil and subsequently started its operations.
Earlier this year, Petrobras informed that Estrela do Mar was expected to arrive in Brazil in December.
Characterized by her high pipelay tension capacity of 550 tons, the vessel will be employed mainly to install umbilical and flexible flowlines and risers to connect subsea wells to floating production units. According to Technip, these installations will take place in waters up to 2,500 meters deep offshore Brazil, including in the pre-salt area.
