    Business opportunities

    Oil companies in Brazil are either starting with their concept studies for recently awarded fields or working towards more efficient subsea structures linked to an increased number of new FPSOs replacing fixed platforms in the years to come. Therefore, we believe this is the right moment to present innovative and solid technology solutions for secure and efficient subsea operations to the Brazilian market.

    Who should participate?

    The main focus in the Brazilian O&G development is the pre-salt area with challenging conditions and deep water subsea applications. Brazil will contract a significant number of FPSO’s in the years to come and has pre-salt and other offshore areas in all stages from aging fields to recently awarded licensed fields in the concept study phase. We believe it is a perfect moment to present relevant Norwegian technology solutions for efficient subsea operations.

    You have products and/or services within the following areas of subsea technology:

    • Digitalization
    • Gas & Low Carbon Footprint
      CCS, Subsea Gas compression, Subsea CO2 separation and reinjection for EOR
    • Safe, high integrity & cost-effective operations
      Data management, field performance management, complement intervention technologies, AUV, Asset Integrity management
    • Optimize lifecycle costs, reliability & efficiency
      Semi and unmanned programs, new sensor technologies, Digicore: power & data highway through controls, umbilical & distribution, subsea wireless communication

    What can you expect?
