Date: Wednesday, November 17, 2004 @ 02:01:05 EST

Subsea 7’s Integrated Remote Technology (IRT) group today announced a recent award from Petrobras for the provision of oceanographic services along ten pre-determined Brazilian coastal sites.  The award is placed in the region of US$2.5M and began on 1st October 2004 for 550 days with a possible extension of an equal period.

The services provided by Subsea 7 will supply Petrobras with the knowledge of the coastal dynamics at the specified sites for future maritime installation projects.  The project will take place within ten shore sites, in water depths to 40 metres, situated between the Brazilian northeast and south coastal regions; five of those sites will have wave and current measurements taken.

Monthly site visits are scheduled for equipment maintenance, oceanographic data retrieval and shore profiling. The job will employ boats of opportunity hired locally in Brazil.

Victor Bomfim, Subsea 7’s Vice President for Brazil commented, “We are pleased to be of service to Petrobras again, remaining as the supplier of choice for oceanographic services in Brazil.  This is an interesting job which will provide Petrobras with invaluable information for future projects”.
