Tratos & Petrobras cooperation
Tratos and Petrobras have already worked on a number of high-profile projects together, including the provision of 110km of umbilical cable for the Roncador field in the Campos Basin to water depths of 2000m; umbilical cable for the Bicudo field also in the Campos Basin; and intervention umbilical to operate in water depths of 3000m and working pressure up to 10,000psi.
Petrobras’ purpose is to provide energy that ensures prosperity in an ethical, safe and competitive way. They are an integrated energy company, focusing on oil and gas, which evolves with society, generates high value, and has unique technical expertise. On the 2021 horizon, they will prioritize oil exploration and production projects in Brazil, with emphasis on deep waters.
Petrobras will seek to grow in a sustainable, realistic manner, guided by ethics, safe operations, and predictability and profitability, pursuant to the highest international industry standards.
The giant field of Roncador was by far the largest discovery made in Brazil in the 90’s. Holding more than 3.3 billion boe in reserves and located in ultradeep waters – 1,500 to 1,900 meters – its development has set up new technological and economical frontiers for Petrobras’s offshore production.
Located in the north-eastern portion of the Campos Basin, 125 km off the Brazilian coast, Roncador covers an area of approximately 110 square kilometres and is comprised of two main blocks, saturated with 18 to 31° API oil.
Due to the differences in oil characteristics and to the massive reserves involved, Petrobras decided to develop Roncador in modules.
Tratos supports the global endeavours of port and navy authorities in upgrading and improving their operational capabilities, which contributes to the sustainable development of ports and achieving the 17 UN Global Goals: Goal 7 to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all, Goal 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, Goal 13: Climate Action, GOAL 3: Good Health and Well-being, Goal 14: Life Below Water, and Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities.
