OSX, an EBX Group Company of integrated solutions for offshore units and services, received an order from its anchor client OGX Petróleo e Gás for construction and charter of two new Wellhead Platforms, WHP-3 and WHP-4, pursuant to the Strategic Cooperation Agreement entered into by the companies.

The two new units will be built by OSX Construção Naval S/A in the Açu Shipbuilding Unit, which is currently being implemented in the northern region of the State of Rio de Janeiro, and are destined to meet OGX’s oil and gas production program.

This commitment is also reflected in the 10,000 Brazilian persons that have applied to date for the shipbuilding technical professional training program that is being implemented by SENAI-FIRJAN jointly with our ITN - Institute of Naval Technology. This is Brazil working and progressing! OSX, at service for the development of Brazil.” said Luiz Eduardo Carneiro, CEO of OSX.
