Brazil’s largest FPU on way to Campos basin' s Roncador field

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Petrobras’ P-55 FPU, the largest and the first of this kind entirely built in Brazil, is on its way to the Roncador field, Campos basin, where it will be installed in a water depth of 1,790 m. 

The column stabilized semi-submersible has a capacity of 180,000 bopd and 6,000,000 cu m of gas. The unit is classed by Bureau Veritas (BV). BV group companies also provided a wide range of verification and support services which made the major project possible.

The P-55 was designed by Petrobras R&D Department (CENPES) and GUSTO (deck box and topsides). It was built over several sites simultaneously. The main ones were the lower hull fabrication and assembly at Estaleiro Atlantico Sul (EAS) in Suape, Pernambuco state and main production modules fabrication, integration and commissioning by QUIP at Estaleiro Rio Grande, Rio Grande do Sul state.
