FPSO vessels under construction
ABS said that the sister FPSOs, currently named P-78 and P-79, underlined ABS’ continued leadership in the sector, where 60 percent of all FPSOs in service are ABS Class. The vessels will be the seventh and eighth FPSO to operate in Brazil’s pre-salt Buzios field in the Santos Basin.
Around 70 percent of FPSOs in Brazil are ABS Class, including 30 vessels with the capacity to handle more than 100,000 barrels per day. It is worth noting that Petrobras started the bidding process for the acquisition of the ninth FPSO for the Búzios field in May this year.
