Subsea services provider Oceaneering International has secured a contract from Petrobras to deliver BOP tethering services offshore Brazil.

The subsea services provider noted that the one-year contract comes with an option to extend it for an additional year.

Under the contract, Oceaneering will provide data acquisition and real-time riser analysis for dynamic positioning rig operations for about seven wells in water depths ranging from 150m to 700m.

The company did not disclose the financial terms of the deal.

Oceaneering Projects Group manager Daniel Nogueira said: “We appreciate Petrobras’ trust in our ability to provide dependable and cost-effective technologies and services.

“This award reinforces our position and track record as a high-quality service provider in Brazil.

“This is an amazing opportunity for Oceaneering to expand its capabilities in Brazil with BOP anchoring services.”

Oceaneering will provide eight locally manufactured suction piles and ten wellhead load relief tensioners as part of the contract.

It will also provide one monitoring system for integration on the BOP and a suction pile pump for suction piles.

According to Oceaneering, an anchor handling tug supply vessel will launch and install the tensioners and suction piles.

In May, Oceaneering International completed an integrated rig services campaign offshore South America using its remotely operated survey (ROS) group.

In February, Oceaneering secured a contract from units of BP to provide comprehensive riserless light well intervention (RLWI) services offshore Angola.
