Shell Macaé offshore

After several incidents at Porto do Açú, Shell decides to interrupt logistical activities with Prumo and Macaé could be the ball of the hour

[supsystic-social-sharing id='1′]Of the 17 operations that Shell performed in Porto do Açú in 12 months, there were 3 incidents in this period. It turns out that there were oil spills in the ocean, which made the company break operating contracts in the port using a system called “ship-to-ship”, which is the process of transferring barrels from one ship to another. Prumo Logística is responsible for operations of this type.

In the back-and-forth between the two companies, Prumo is charging Shell with overdue amounts and that it is not complying with the signed contractual terms. Despite this situation of indebtedness, Prumo admitted that there were incidents, but it claims that the systems are from third-party companies, as disclosed on its official website.

Shell in an official note to the G1, informed that it stopped operating at the Port of Açú due to the lack of security in operations at the terminal, which is not compatible with the security standards required by the company

This problem between the two institutions ended up revealing some problems in cargo handling activities in Açú. Other companies had also been evaluating the issue of the security of operations at these terminals.

Despite Petrobras also having operating contracts in the same segment as Shell, it declined to comment on this impasse or anything related to safety systems.

Macaé at the time

Naturally, this opens up another range of opportunities in Macaé, as the construction of the Port in the City is now sanctioned and released. If the experts' predictions are confirmed, Shell may operate in the port of Imbetiba and later, when the Port of Barreto is ready, it may close new contracts in this venture as well.
