Background of this project:

The FPSO P-79 project is worth overall approximately $2.3 billion. Saipem’s portion is approximately $1.3 billion, the company said at the time.

GE Power Conversion’s scope includes medium-voltage and low-voltage switchboards and motor control centers and high-power transformers for the P-79 vessel “with a high degree of local content.”

André Ribeiro, Commercial Leader for the marine sector for GE Power Conversion in Latin America: “GE Power Conversion has previously delivered Electrical Modules to six of Petrobras’ owned and operated FPSOs operating in the pre-salt area including P-75 and P-77 in the Búzios field, with similar scope of supply to what will be provided for the P-79 FPSO. GE’s proven track record in demonstrating technical expertise for the demanding operating profile of the FPSO has been a key success factor in securing this important contract.”

The FPSO is slated to start operations at the offshore field in 2025. It will allow initial separation of gas from the oil extracted in the deep offshore reservoir and will have a production capacity of 180,000 barrels of oil per day (bopd) and 7.2 million cubic meters of (mcbm) gas per day, with a storage capacity of two million barrels of oil.
