The hull for Petrobras' FPSO vessel Petrobras 71 (P-71) has departed CIMC Raffles in China on 12 December.

The unit was delivered earlier this month, following first steel cut in March 2018. The hull is currently being towed to Brazil, where integration work on the floater will be carried out at Jurong Aracruz shipyard in Espirito Santo.

Petrobras has contracted CIMC Raffles to deliver two power generation modules for FPSO P-71 in 2020. In May, the transport barge carrying the originally supplied modules to Jurong Aracruz yard partially sunk offshore Brazil. The FPSO with a length of 316 m and width of 54 m is capable of processing 150,000 barrels of oil and 211MM scf of gas per day.
