Subsea 7 S.A. has been awarded a contract by Petrobras worth in excess of U$350 million for operation of the Pipe Lay Support Vessel (PLSV).

The contract is on a day rate basis for five years. Kommandor 3000 will start operations under the contract in 2013 (Subsea 7 note that during the year this vessel will spend approximately 90 days in dry-dock for maintenance).

The work scope is similar to the current contract, including project management, engineering and the installation of Petrobras supplied flexible lines and equipment on a day rate basis.

Kommandor 3000 is a construction/flexlay vessel with a purpose built pipelay system to install flexible lines, umbilicals and equipment in up to 2,000 metres water depth and with a top tension capacity of 150 tonnes.

Victor Bomfim, Senior Vice President for Brazil, said: “Subsea 7 has one of the most advanced vessel fleets in the world for subsea engineering and construction, and we look forward to supporting Petrobras in future developments.”
