decommissioning platforms shipbuilding

With some latent decommissioning projects starting in 2020, Brazilian shipyards will be able to take an economic breath with these new activities

Due to the current crisis in our shipyards, the shipbuilding in Brazil is looking for new sources of business to try to compensate for the lack of activities due to the absence of contracts. A good alternative would be the oil and natural gas platform decommissioning market, given the number of offshore units that have been in operation for over 25 years in the country.

Currently, 45% of these units are already in advanced stages of research to start their first decommissioning as of 2020, which will generate many movements in the naval centers in this period. It is worth mentioning that in Brazil, there are currently 160 offshore platforms and only 55% will be part of Petrobras' new business plan until 2022, as the state-owned company decided to build units in eastern countries.

SOBENA (Sociedade Brasileira de Construção Naval) has been studying the subject for some time and had held the first workshop on the subject in 2017. It ended up taking the lead in two incursions by Brazilian companies for decommissioning in the North Sea and the Gulf of Mexico successfully. Now SOBENA promotes a second Workshop on August 29th, to prepare shipbuilding entrepreneurs and specialists for this new market. Interested parties can register on the website

There are 74 platforms over 25 years old in Brazil and Petrobras already has a new generation of offshore units that have already been built and are about to be built, it is natural that these relatively old units will be replaced. The first planned decommissionings are for the Marlim fields, in the Campos Basin, and for Cação, in the Espirito Santos Basin. Brazilian shipbuilding is looking forward to this new cycle of activities and economic injection.
