Petrobras' FPSO P-70 has arrived in Brazil, following its journey from COOEC's yard in Qingdao, China.
The FPSO was transported by Boskalis semisubmersible heavy transport vessel BOKA Vanguard. In March 2019, the FPSO hull for P-70 with a length of 316 m and width of 74 m was towed from COSCO's Changxing yard in Shanghai, where it was built. Integration, hook-up and commissioning work on the floater was completed at COOEC's Qingdao yard. The unit, capable of processing 150,000 b/d, will be installed at Atapu field offshore Brazil. Petrobras plans first oil from FPSO P-70 in 2020. The Atapu field is located in the Transfer of Rights area, operated by Petrobras with a 100% interest.
