New contracts signal expansion in Brazil

Following the acquisition earlier this year of a 60% share in Brazilian subsea engineering and diving company, Servicos Maritimos Continental (as reported in the autumn issue of Pelican) the James Fisher group has won two significant contracts for oil and gas majors in the region.

The team has already started work on a 60-day contract with a leading independent oil and gas company, Perenco, and oil and gas services company, Sapura Energy. They’ve also signed a new two-year contract with MODEC – a global supplier and operator of offshore floating platforms, to work on all 14 of its floating production storage and offloading vessels (FPSOs) stationed in Brazil.

As an established air diving service provider to the offshore oil sector in Brazil, SM Continental provides inspection, repair and maintenance services to offshore oil terminals, primarily FPSOs.

The team has joined dedicated Brazil-based teams from Fendercare Marine and ScanTech Offshore.

Richard Wilson, the regional director for James Fisher in Latin America says:

‘We now have a total of 235 James Fisher employees in Brazil, we have grown rapidly, we have a great team, and the future for 2020 and beyond is looking bright.

 ‘Over the last few months we have been very busy integrating SM Continental into the group. We are delighted to service customers such as Perenco, MODEC and Total, and to have extended our existing contract with Petrobras.

‘We have also added a new specialist area to our subsea offering in the form of a rope access business which uses techniques used in climbing and caving to allow workers to access difficult-to-reach locations without the use of scaffolding or cradles.’
