Jurong has 3 employees, so it could even double the team. The base will probably be built in Singapore and completed here.

Fausto Frizzera, member of the board of the Centro Espírito Santo de Desenvolvimento Metalmecânico (CDMEC), highlights that part of these contracts would come from direct suppliers. And he also agreed that the trend is for the hull to come with the shell ready from Singapore or another supplier.

Petrobras began talks with Seatrium after another competitor withdrew from the bidding. The China Offshore Oil Engineering Corporation (COOEC) was competing for the contracts, however, it was prevented from giving up on the deal, which involves the construction of its platform modules.

Petrobras ships will reduce emissions per barrel of oil by 30%

The future P-84 (Atapu) and P-85 (Sépia) platforms manufactured at the Jurong Aracruz Shipyard will each have a daily production capacity of 225 thousand barrels of oil and processing of millions of cubic meters of gas.

Production is expected to begin in 2028, generating thousands of jobs. The project stands out for its projection of a 30% reduction in the intensity of greenhouse gas emissions per barrel of oil equivalent produced.

The objective of Petrobras' negotiation with Seatrium is the construction of platform ships (FPSOs) P-84 and P-85. These vessels, built at the Jurong Aracruz Shipyard, will be strategically installed in the Atapu and Sepia, respectively, both located in the pre-salt of the Santos Basin.

Seatrium, in Brazil, operates the BrasFELS shipyards, in Angra dos Reis (Rio de Janeiro), and Jurong Aracruz, in Espírito Santo, which means that at least one of the ships can be built in Aracruz.

Another ship built at Jurong Aracruz Shipyard

In addition to negotiations with Petrobras, the Brazil's navy recently celebrated a historic milestone with the keel-laying ceremony of the first polar ship developed in Brazilian territory.

The event, which symbolizes the official start of construction of the vessel, took place at the Jurong Aracruz Shipyard and was attended by the Minister of Defense, José Múcio Monteiro. With a budget of around 692 million reais, the polar ship Almirante Saldanha will be the jewel of the Brazilian polar fleet, designed to replace one of the two vessels of the same type currently in operation. 

The ship is expected to enter into service in October 2025. According to information from the Brazilian Navy, the vessel will be equipped with one of the most advanced icebreaking technologies in the world. This capability will allow the ship to break through glacial layers up to one meter thick, even those formed in less than a year.
