Petrobras’ long-term technology strategy

Speaking at the “Global Deepwater Technology Development” panel in Houston, Petrobras’ executive manager for production engineering in Exploration & Production, Solange da Silva Guedes highlighted the importance of integrating companies that operate in deepwater oil and gas fields with universities and suppliers for the development of offshore production technology.
The panel, with more than 250 attendees, opened the first day of the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), the world’s biggest event devoted to offshore oil exploration and production.
“The collaboration with universities, companies and suppliers from around the world is something Petrobras is used to doing, and it has been very fruitful,” said Solange da Silva, who also mentioned that the development of technologies in partnership with other institutions, such as Procap that made possible most of the solutions for the Campos Basin, have proven to be successful at Petrobras.
“The first Procap was created to develop technologies for production in fields at water depths greater than 400 meters,” she said. “Today, the Procap Visão Futuro (Future Vision) seeks to anticipate the needs and to provide and improve the technologies.”
