BrasFELS Shipyard, a member of the Seatrium Group, has secured a contract from Offshore Frontier Solutions, a MODEC Group company, to undertake parts of the topside modules fabrication of a FPSO for the Raia project in Brazil, operated by Equinor on behalf of the Consortium in the Raia project. The latest win marks the eighth project collaboration between BrasFELS and MODEC, reflecting the long-standing partnership the two organisations have enjoyed for more than a decade.
BrasFELS’ scope of work for the FPSO Raia comprises the fabrication of three modules: vapor recovery unit/ flare knockout (VRU/ FLARE KO); oil separation and stabilisation; and the flowline circulation and metering and utility systems. The project will be undertaken by Seatrium’s BrasFELS shipyard located in Angra dos Reis, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and is expected to commence work in the first quarter of 2024. When completed, FPSO Raia will have the capacity to process 126,000 barrels of oil per day (bopd) and 16 million cubic meters of gas per day, with a storage capacity of two million barrels of crude oil. The FPSO will be deployed in the giant pre-salt area at the southern part of Campos Basin, approximately 200 kilometers off the coast of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
