Wärtsilä Hamworthy Assisting With Flare Gas Recovery
Wärtsilä Hamworthy has received a contract to supply its flare gas recovery packages to four floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) units under construction for Petrobras.
The units, each of which will be able to handle 150 000 barrels per day, will be deployed on the pre-salt fields off Santos, Brazil. Three of the FPSOs will be used for Block BM-S-11 Lula (Tupi) and one will go to Block BM-S-9 Guara.
The first FPSO is expected to be operational by the end of 2014, with the next three producing by 2015.
