Rio Oil & Gas
24 Sep 2018 - 27 Sep 2018
The EIC is proud to be organising and managing the UK Group at Rio Oil & Gas taking place from 24-27 September 2018.
South America’s second largest economy, Brazil remains one of the most important players in the oil and gas sector. The country’s massive oil reserves and the frequent offshore oil discoveries made in the coveted pre-salt province make Brazil an attractive destination for IOCs around the world. Operators such as Shell, Total and Statoil are involved in ambitious offshore projects, some of them in partnership with Petrobras, the country’s national oil company. Brazilian economy is rebounding and the country is once again providing opportunities for engineering consultancies, oilfield contractors, major equipment manufacturers, subsea specialists and O&M companies.
Petrobras is currently pursuing a US$74.4 billion investment plan for 2017-2021, with a strong focus on the development of pre-salt projects featuring several floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) units. The company plans to put into operation 18 FPSOs in the four-year period, of which eight have yet to be awarded.
