Petrobras Awards Decomm Contract to Consortium PIAUI-ALABAMA
Brazil’s Petrobras has awarded the contract for decommissioning services covering three wellhead platforms at the shallow-water Cacao field in the Espirito Santo basin to the PIAUIALABAMA CONSORCIO.
Consortium PIAUI-ALABAMA, consists of Shore Offshore Services, LLC., Metodo Potencial Engenharia LTDA., Sea Partners Navegacao e Logistica LTDA. and Triunfo Logistica LTDA.
The Cacao decommissioning project covers three wellhead platforms located six kilometres offshore, 13 wells and three pipelines lying in less than 20 meters of water. The field was shut down in 2010, Petrobras wants all three platforms — PCA-1, PCA-2 and PCA-3 — to be completely removed from the field.
The Piaui-Alabama consortium will be responsible for all engineering and planning, platform preparatory work offshore, diving work and subsea surveys, logistics and structural removal works in the Cacao decommissioning.
Cacao was discovered by Petrobras in 1977 and came on stream the following year. Output peaked at 500 barrels per day of oil and 10 million cubic meters per day of natural gas in the early 1980s, but the field was producing just 52 bpd at the time operations were halted.
Shore Offshore is a 100% Woman Owned Company, with their Headquarters in Gibson and an office in Houston. Shore Offshore has a management and offshore team that has performed over 600 platform removals and installations throughout the years. Coupled with Shore Offshore Services’ capable construction vessels, the team executes projects at the highest level while keeping safe operations as the top priority. On each project, the team’s experience gives us the ability to thoroughly plan each project and safely overcome unforeseen obstacles and changing environmental conditions.
