Petrobras Tender

Petrobras (Brazil) has disclosed the list of qualified vessels in respect of the tender for AHTS 21000 BHP and 18000 BHP.

The tender refers to four technical specifications; ‘18000 A’, ‘18000 B’, ‘18000 C’ and ‘21000’, which is from lowest to highest technical specification. The attached lists summarise the qualified vessels within each of the technical specifications and the relevant offered USD daily rates. The vessels are ranked by a virtual rate that reflects pricing for certain vessel specific characteristics, placing several of the Company’s vessels favourably.

Petrobras is yet to decide if any of the qualified vessels shall be chartered for the tendered 4 + 4 years contracts. Petrobras has not disclosed the time schedule for its further decision process.
