As part of the life extension project for the Polvo Floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, operator BW Offshore has contracted Norwegian based liquid handling and pump specialist PG Flow Solutions to supply new water booster pumps.

PG Flow Solutions said its scope of work includes the engineering, procurement, assembly of pump skid and commissioning of two produced water booster pumps in super duplex materials, with 150kW electrical motors, variable frequency drives and pressurized seal system.

"After a couple of challenging years for the Brazilian offshore industry, we are slowly seeing small signs of recovery," said says Steve Paulsen, CEO of PG Flow Solutions. "The Brazilian market will require numerous new FPSOs in the coming decade, and we believe our track record for this segment makes us an interesting supplier and cooperation partner for such projects."

BW Offshore is currently operating the FPSO Polvo on the Polvo field, for PetroRio, approximately 100 kilometers offshore Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. FPSO Polvo is capable of handling a daily oil production of 90,000 barrels of oil per day, with a storage capacity of 1.6 million barrels.
