Started: Petrobras starts contracting process for new drilling rigs, more than 15 may start operating in Brazil

The rigs chartered by the state-owned company in Brazil already have contracts expiring in 2018 and 2019, Petrobras launches the first public notices to replace and hire more. understand

New platforms will be chartered by Petrobras with the aim of replacing the old fleet and negotiating more competitive prices, one hour or another this moment would come and it could be good for some operators and bad for others. Last month, it had already released an invitation to bid for two platforms with an anchoring system that will work on 500-meter blades and another at 2200 meters deep. The next step will be 2 more units for the Santos Basin.

Until January of next year, nothing more and nothing 14 rigs will have their contracts expired, out of a total of 23 in activities in the country at the moment, not counting those who are abroad. The expectation is that Petrobras will choose to obtain a little more than half of the volume of current rigs, bearing in mind that not so much current business due to many multinationals are also exploring oil assets here. To save money, the state-owned company plans to reduce the fleet to between 15 and 18 rigs.

Companies that can enter and that can leave

A Petrobras has taken stricter measures to hire new rigs, crossing out companies that have a history of many fatal accidents from the list and their list in Brazil or in other countries, some of which include: Petroserv, Transocean and Ensco. Among the companies invited to participate in the bids are Maersk, Rowan, Ocean Rig Diamond, Queiroz Galvão and Seadrill. According to specialists, Queiros Galvão can take advantage of having an anchoring rig in the country and it can be an additional saving because it will avoid displacement taxes.

Two Seadrill rigs contracted by Petrobras will be replaced, the West Carina and West Tellus that are already to win this year and next year. It is not known what the state's relationship with Seadrill will be from then on. Depending on negotiations with more flexible daily rental values, even more rigs can be hired, provided they have the capacity to operate in deep waters.
