Singapore offshore and marine giant Keppel has confirmed securing a US$2.8 billion for a newbuild floating production, storage and offloading vessel for Petrobras' huge Buzios field offshore Brazil.

The engineering, procurement and construction contract for the P-83 FPSO was awarded to Keppel Offshore & Marine subsidiary Keppel Shipyard.

It is a repeat order to Keppel's August 2022 contract for the P-80 FPSO, which is also to be located on Buzios.
