Petrobras Brazil, a specialised oil, gas and energy company, has signed a contract with Sembcorp Marine Rigs & Floaters Singapore, an energy and urban development company, for the construction of the P-82 FPSO (floating system of production) in Búzios field in the Santos Basin, Brazil.

The P-82 FPSO vessel is planned to have the capacity to produce 225,000 barrels of oil per day, process up to 12 million m³ of gas per day, and store more than 1.6 million barrels.

Petrobras has said the unit will incorporate: closed flare technology, which increases gas utilisation; a methane gas detection system capable of acting to prevent or mitigate the risk of leaks and; digital twins, which will create a virtual reproduction of the platform to enable simulations and remote tests before it goes into operation.

The vessel is scheduled to start operating in 2026 and will be one of the largest to operate in the oil and gas industry worldwide.
