Petrobras says that the P-58 FPSO production platform and the SS-88 TAD drilling support vessel (Tender Assisted Drilling), strategic projects in the 2013-2017 Business and Management Plan, are on their way to their respective locations in Parque das Baleias and Papa Terra, respectively.
Yesterday, 12/04/2013, the P-58 left the Honório Bicalho shipyard in Rio Grande (RS) where it was converted along with 15 modules being integrated to the unit. The platform is expected to reach the Parque das Baleias complex in the Campos Basin within six to eight days, depending on sea conditions.
The 88 - TAD submersible platform, built at Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Company-DSIC, in China, and Superior Derrick Services-SDS, in the U.S. is coming to Brazil and is expected to arrive in January 2014. After the competent authorities have cleared it, the platform will go to the Papa-Terra field, south of the Campos Basin to operate together with the P-61 production platform, in the Papa Terra field.
