Petrobras platform Mota Engil

Even though it does not meet the state-owned company's Compliance standards, Petrobras releases the Portuguese company in 2 batches of offshore units

Mota-Engil has just been classified by Petrobras for maintenance projects in offshore units in the Campos Basin, arousing the frustration of some movements. It turns out that according to the state-owned company's Compliance rules, the company of Portuguese origin could not participate in these bidding lots, since the company would be violating some of these rules, which are at least 3: Involvement in the “furação” operation in Portugal, punishment for tax fraud in their country and currency evasion.

The contract is for UMS campaigns under the administration of UO-RIO and Mota-Engil was in second place in two lots, but according to Petrobras rules for this bidding, it will only be able to choose one of the lots. Italian contractor Saldimpiante Construzioni, who also participated and ranked third, filed an administrative appeal to move up in position (she complied with all Compliance rules) but Petrobras did not accept, leaving Mota in the same classification.

There is a real probability that the Portuguese company will acquire one of the lots, after all, it presented one of the best prices for maintenance contracts. Some specialists criticize this attitude for causing the detriment of Brazilian companies, as was the case of Elfe Engenharia, prevented from participating in the bidding process for much less. Petrobras was contacted for clarification regarding these norms, whether they are applied to all companies or not. So far, there has been no return.
