OceanPact has signed a four-year R$310 million contract with Petrobras to charter the Ilha de Santana, a platform supply vessel. The ship will be used for logistics and emergency response support for Petrobras along the entire Brazilian coastline. In addition to serving Petrobras, OceanPact also has contracts with various other oil and gas industry operators in Brazil.

In April, OceanPact also announced new contracts with Petrobras worth R$650 million in all to charter three oil spill response vessels: the Fernando de Noronha, Jim O’Brien and Macaé. These vessels will be used by Petrobras in operations off the Brazilian coast to provide emergency readiness and response in the event of environmental incidents.

OceanPact has a fleet of 28 vessels made up of oil spill response vessels, ROV support vessels, platform supply vessels, research vessels, multi-purpose support vessels and anchor handling tug supply vessels. The company also has the largest inventory of offshore emergency response equipment in Latin America.
