Specifically, the topsides of Peregrino departed from Texas and headed to Brazil, transferred by Heerema’s H-541 cargo barge last November.
The living quarters for the Peregrino C platform also set sail in November from Stord, Norway, onboard the BigRoll Beaufort vessel. The Peregrino jacket sailed away before that, in October 2019. It was built by Heerema Fabrication Group in the Netherlands.
Equinor reported that the Peregrino C platform is now placed in Brazil after installation by Heerema’s Sleipnir, the largest crane vessel in the world.
Also, it is reported that 880 workers will be offshore to prepare the platform for operations later this year. Yet, once it comes live, Peregrino C will provide 350 offshore and onshore jobs in Brazil.
The oil field is located in licenses BM-C-7 and BM-C-47, approximately 85km offshore Brazil, in the Campos basin, in water depths of 100m. The field consists of two fixed wellhead platforms and floating production storage and offloading unit.
The platform will contribute to prolonging the lifetime for the Peregrino field and will create value for 20 years. It will add 273 million in recoverable reserves.
