OdfjellGalvão, Petrobras and Seadrill are each working with Sete Brasil to monitor the construction of seven drillships that are part of a project to build 29 ultra-deepwater rigs in Brazil. The integrated team faces challenges working with a high number of stakeholders, a shipyard that is under construction – the Jurong Aracruz Shipyard – and high local content requirements. Vitor Azevedo, Project Director at OdfjellGalvão, a joint venture between Odfjell Drilling and Galvão, spoke with DC at the 2014 IADC International Deepwater Drilling Conference in Rio de Janeiro about the significance and status of the newbuild project.
