Brazilian oil giant Petrobras has issued a tender to contract a fresh batch of subsea trees and associated equipment to assist in the development of two producing units to be deployed in the ultra-deepwater section of the Sergipe-Alagoas basin.

Petrobras is in the process of chartering a pair of floating production, storage and offloading vessels to exploit hydrocarbons from an uncharted section of the Sergipe-Alagoas basin off Brazil's northeast coast, with first oil earmarked for 2027.
