Today we are going to learn another project in Brazil. That is the MV31 FPSO project.
The FPSO Guanabara MV31 is deployed for operations in the Mero (formerly Libra) field operated by Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. (Petrobras), located in the giant “pre-salt” region of the Santos Basin off the coast of Brazil.
Moored some 180 kilometers off the coast of Rio de Janeiro, at a water depth of approximately 2,100 meters, the FPSO is capable of processing 180,000 barrels of crude oil, 424 million standard cubic feet of gas and 225,000 barrels of water injection per day, and has a storage capacity of 1,400,000 barrels of crude oil. The FPSO is designed to reinject 100% of the processed gas back into the oil well.
The FPSO is leased on a 22-year time charter contract to Petrobras. MODEC was responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction and mobilization of the FPSO, including topsides processing equipment as well as hull and marine systems. SOFEC, Inc., a MODEC group company, designed and provided the spread mooring system of the FPSO.
This is the 14th FPSO/FSO vessel that MODEC has delivered to the Brazilian oil & gas sector, as well as MODEC’s 7th FPSO in the “pre-salt” region.
