Prumo participates in OTC Brazil at Riocentro

Company presents operations at Açu Port terminals and opportunities for the Oil & Gas industry

​Prumo participates in the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) Brazil on October 27-29, held at Riocentro, in Rio de Janeiro. With a location on Pavilion 3 (stand I-11A), the company will present Açu Port, one of the world’s safest and most efficient industrial complexes. Operating since October 2014, the Port is ready to meet the demands of the Oil & Gas industry.

Visitors to the stand may navigate all areas of the Industrial Complex using an interactive tool and follow all operations executed at the moment. A video wall will exhibit institutional content and aerial images of Açu Port, such as the offshore (T1), onshore (T2) and Multicargo (T-MULT) terminals, and operational facilities of companies located there. The video includes testimonies of clients such as BP, BG, Oiltanking, Anglo and Wartsila.

Those who visit the Prumo stand may also get familiar with areas operated by clients such as Edison Chouest. Located around the canal at T2, this unit will have 15 berths for offshore support, and 6 of those will be exclusive to Petrobras. Other leading companies are already operating or building facilities at Açu Port, including NOV, Technip, Wartsila and BP.
Visitors may also learn about the development of oil terminal T-OIL, which will begin operations in August 2016, with a handling capacity of 1.2 mbpd. BG was the first client to sign a contract to use this terminal, contemplating oil transhipment during 20 years, with an average volume of 200 kbpd.

Açu Port has unique characteristics — such as large depth, strategic location (being only 150km away from the main wells in the Campos Basin) and efficient infrastructure — that position it as the main solution for companies operating in the offshore segment in Brazil. Proximity to the biggest producing region in the country, responsible for 80% of all crude extracted, provides significant time and fuel savings.
