Exhibit | Rio Oil & Gas | EIC

Why Exhibit?

Exhibiting at the UK Pavilion will reap significant benefits and opportunities for exhibitors. The UK Pavilion has a prime location within the exhibition hall and includes innovative UK branded stand designs to draw visitors to the group and increase footfall.

You will benefit from having a dedicated project manager to help support you throughout the planning process as well as having the ability to connect you with potential customers with the EIC facilitating key introductions.

The UK Pavilion also has a dedicated private lounge to hold meetings, network or enjoy a fresh cup of coffee. The list goes on and on.

Why Brazil?

More than 12 years after the start-up of the Angra dos Reis FPSO, development of Brazil’s pre-salt oil reserves is in full swing. Petrobras’s recently launched 2022-26 business plan has allocated US$38.4bn to E&P activities in pre-salt projects, including the installation of 15 new FPSOs in the four-year period. Last year saw major EPC contracts awarded to Keppel-Hyundai and DSME-Saipem for the P-78 and P-79 FPSOs, respectively, while tenders are ongoing for additional FPSOs elsewhere in the country. 

Petrobras has also awarded key SURF EPCI contracts to TechnipFMC, Saipem, McDermott and the Subsea Integration Alliance. While Petrobras remains Brazil’s top E&P player, IOCs such as Equinor and Shell are also making progress with major projects. The Norwegian operator announced a final investment decision on the Bacalhau project in June 2021, with Modec selected as the FPSO contractor. Shell, meanwhile, is close to awarding a contract for the Gato do Mato FPSO, also in the pre-salt area. 

Opportunities are varied and extend beyond the companies above. EICDataStream is currently tracking 81 E&P projects in Brazil, with a combined CAPEX of US$131 billion. With projects ranging from exploration to decommissioning, IOCs to independent players, onshore to offshore, Brazil is a natural target for the global oil and gas supply chain.
