Petrobras awarded Subsea 7 a two-year US$200 million contract for continued use of its Seven Seas construction and flex-lay vessel for the installation of flexible lines.

The contract work scope will be similar to that of other Subsea 7 pipelay support vessels (PLSVs) operating under day-rate contracts in Brazil, providing engineering and installation services for client-supplied flowlines, umbilicals and subsea equipment. 

The vessel has been operating for Petrobras under a similar day-rate contract since 2013 and will begin the new contract in direct continuation to the current one.

The Seven Seas is a vessel capable of operating in water depths up to 3000m and is equipped with an advanced flexible pipe-lay system with top tension capacity of 430-tonnes.
