Brazil – FPSO – Petrobras 63

Nitrogen Receiver

Petrobras 63 - Brazil , FPSO - (Floating Production Storage Off Loading)
The P-63 is one of the new units coming on stream in 2013 helping to increase oil production for Petrobras to reach the production target of 2.75 million barrels per day, forecast for 2017. The P-63 was converted into an FPSO from the tanker BW Nisa, at the Cosco Shipyard in China. Altogether 23 process plant modules were installed and interconnected. This was done by the Quip (Queiroz Galvao, UTC, Iesa and Camargo Correa) Consortium and BW offshore. The FPSO P-63 will work together with the P-61 platform, the first TLWP (Tension Leg Wellhead Platform) of its kind built in Brazil, which is in the final stages of construction in Angra dos Reis (RJ).
