Dutch floater specialist SBM Offshore has entered negotiations with Petrobras for a charter contract for the FPSO Almirante Tamandaré.
The vessel will operate in the Buzios field in the Santos basin, offshore Brazil.
SBM Offshore said Tuesday the anticipated production capacity of the unit is 225,000 barrels of oil and 12 million m3 of gas per day.
According to Petrobras, it will be the largest oil production unit operating on the Brazilian coast and one of the largest in the world, with a daily processing capacity of 225 thousand barrels of oil and 12 million m3 of gas.
“If and when an agreement is reached, SBM Offshore will inform the market,” the company said.
SBM Offshore is the builder and operator of the Liza Destiny FPSO which is currently producing oil at the Stabroek Block some 120 miles offshore Guyana.
