ABB Wins Offshore Oil and Gas Contracts Totaling $42 Million
ABB has won several orders collectively worth $42 million to provide power supply infrastructure and equipment for several floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels. The vessels will produce crude oil off the coast of Brazil; they will be operated by several oil and gas producers, with Petrobras as the end customer. The orders were booked during the third quarter.
ABB's comprehensive power equipment delivery for each vessel will ensure a reliable power supply onboard. Each delivery includes a containerized E-House (electrical house) for the complete power system, related power generation and distribution equipment, and engineering and installation services.
The contracts include:
- Delivery of a complete Electrical Module (E-House) with complete power distribution systems to Brazilian oil and gas consortium QUIP, for installation on new PETROBRAS FPSO P-63 (Papa-Terra field). QUIP and BW Offshore will initially operate the vessel, which will later be operated by Petrobras.
- Supply of an Electrical Module to control the heating system for Technip's Risers on the Petrobras FPSO P-63 (Papa-Terra field). The "Integrated Production Bundles" IPB technological solution will be used in the heavy oil Papa-Terra field to increase the temperature of the fluid.
- Electrical Module (E-House) with complete power distribution to SBM Offshore for the FPSO Cidade de Paraty. SBM Offshore has signed a contract with Petrobras for a twenty year charter and operation of an FPSO for the Tupi Nordeste development in the pre-salt area, offshore Brazil.
- Power supply and distribution equipment to SBM Offshore for the FPSO Cidade de Anchieta. ABB's deliverables are part of an upgrade for the vessel, which was previously stationed on the Espadarte field in Brazil. After modification, SBM Offshore will lease and operate the vessel on contract from Petrobras, on the developing Baleia Azul field off the coast of Brazil.
