Petrobras has awarded a contract, worth USD 465 million over a period of 5 years, to Aker Oilfield Services to provide subsea intervention services, offshore Brazil, from the Aker Wayfarer vessel. The contract term will start within the fourth quarter of 2016 and has a 5-year option extension. The Wayfarer will be outfitted at a yard in Norway to become a deepwater subsea-equipment-support vessel. It will have a fiber-rope deployment system, deck skidding systems, and a subsea-orientation equipment system, allowing it to install and retrieve subsea trees and modules, including subsea structures and manifolds.
