Brazilian oil giant Petrobras has approached the market with a new tender to contract a fresh batch of flexible risers to serve its Parque das Baleias deep-water development in the prolific Campos basin.

Petrobras already has four floating production, storage and offloading vessels on stream in Parque das Baleias offshore Brazil and has chartered a fifth unit — the Maria Quiteria FPSO — with Malaysia’s Yinson Holdings.
