TOKYO, Dec 13, 2019 - (JCN Newswire) - Mitsubishi Corporation (MC), together with Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK Line), has entered into a joint venture with SBM Offshore N.V. (SBM), a global leader in the FPSO sector, for the charter, operation, and maintenance of a Floating, Production, Storage, and Offloading (FPSO(1)) system for Petrobras.




FPSO Cidade de Saquarema


To be installed at the Mero Oil Field(2) off the Brazilian coast, this FPSO, named FPSO Sepetiba, is scheduled to commence operations in 2022. Through its participation, MC will help develop and ensure stable production from offshore oil and gas resources in Brazil.
