Açu Port participates in OTC Houston

The biggest fair for the O&G industry in the world will be held on May 2-5

Açu Port participates in the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), the main fair for the global Oil & Gas industry, on May 2-5 in Houston, Texas. Located on the Brazil Pavilion (booth 1241), the structure will introduce Açu Port, which is consolidating its position as one of the world’s safest and most efficient industrial complexes, prepared to meet the demands of the O&G industry.

“Açu Port offers a unique port and industrial solution in Brazil. Notwithstanding the current macro situation, our distinctions — such as prime location, available area for installation of small and large industrial facilities, and operations that are already being carried out — are sources of great cost savings for many companies in the O&G sector. We are contributing to reduce costs and bottlenecks in the overloaded port infrastructure that serves the oil industry in Brazil,” said José Magela, CEO of Prumo Logística, the company that develops and operates Açu Port.

The company is participating in the fair for the fourth consecutive year, and its booth will present details of the port. An interactive tool will provide information about the enterprise, what has been done so far, and the next terminals that will come online. The company will also show a video with aerial images of the Port and all of its terminals, in addition to client units that are already installed and ongoing construction works.

Açu Port
Operating since October 2014, Açu Port has unique characteristics, such as great depth, strategic location just 150 km away from the main wells of the Campos Basin, and efficient infrastructure, positioning the enterprise as the main solution for installation of offshore companies in Brazil. The proximity with the region that accounts for 80% of crude oil production in the country ensures significant time and fuel savings.

Leading companies in their segments, such as NOV, Technip, Wartsila, BP and Edison Chouest (ECO), already have facilities or operations at Açu Port.
