Houston-headquartered energy service firm Halliburton has been handed a contract by Petrobras for pre-salt development in the Santos Basin, offshore Brazil.
Halliburton will provide drilling and completion services under the two and a half year contract.
Anouar Fraija, vice president of Halliburton Brazil, said: “We are pleased to win this work and to collaborate with Petrobras to provide a tailored application of Halliburton technology.
“This contract is a testament to our continuous commitment to safety, superior service quality and helping operators maximize their asset value.”
Halliburton has a strong track record in Brazil’s pre-salt fields, which have some of the most complex wells ever drilled, and require a broad scope of technologies and capabilities to achieve economical and operational success.
Halliburton also maintains a technology center in Rio de Janeiro, which serves as a global center of expertise for deepwater innovation and training.
The center’s capabilities allow Halliburton to translate offshore knowledge into new technologies that reduce uncertainty and increase efficiency and reliability.
