Danish vessel owner Maersk Supply Service has landed a contract from Brazil’s Petrobras to carry out offshore activities related to the Mero-2 project in the Santos basin pre-salt province.

Petrobras plans to have four large floating production, storage and offloading vessels at the Mero field, and Netherlands-based player SBM Offshore is building the Sepetiba FPSO, the unit that will operate on the Mero-2 area.
