Upon arrival in our country, it will proceed directly to the Campos Basin for drilling in several fields of the Shell 2018 campaign.

A Shell contracted the Catarina rig, which belongs to Petroserv, for 60 days to carry out interventions in the Campos Basin, the expected arrival date is Sunday or Monday (the 22nd or 23rd respectively) and the works will start in May and can be extended for a few more months, if necessary. Intervention activities will take place in the Bijupirá-Salema assets and in Parque das Conchas, which also includes the Abalone, Ostra and Argonauta fields. the rig left the city of Las Palmas, in Spain, towed by a gigantic tugboat. The departure took place in March.

According to Shell, it will have 15 optional locations to intervene. Nowadays, the Bijupirá-Salem and Parrque das Conchas fields produce about 10 and 45 barrels of oil per day, respectively, with the oldest of them being produced since 1993 with the FPSO Fluminense type platform. . Arriving in Brazil, the semi-submersible Catarina will proceed directly to the Campos Basin, where all the procedures for releasing and admitting the unit will be carried out by the Navy, Federal Revenue Service and other government agencies. The hiring of the rig was agreed in mid-February.

In addition to the Catarina rig, Shell also opened a charter process to drill in the Gato do Mato and Gato do Mato do Sul assets, located in the Santos Basin. This acquisition was announced at the beginning of 2018, but the negotiations have not yet been finalized. In fact, it is still evaluating some proposals, which will be for wells that will be drilled within a year.

There may or may not be additional hires for these units, What we do know is that a few months ago, CEPEM (Center for Business Psychology) carried out a large selection process for it (check out the article here) We don't know if there are Brazilians coming along with this rig, or if the workers have already completed the integration and are already cocked waiting just to go up to the unit. this we can guarantee.
