In 2014, one of the leading Brazilian EPC contractors was appointed to deploy 2 vessels that would install umbilical and flexible flowlines and risers to connect subsea wells to floating production units in waters up to over 2,500 m deep. Offshore Brazil is a challenging environment that included the pre-salt area.
The operation of these vessels required the expertise of marine professionals with a specific set of qualifications that would allow them to operate this complex machinery in Atlantic waters.
This required a resourcing strategy that would tap into internationally referred and crossed reference candidates across the marine sector. We were engaged to provide this highly specialised expat workforce.
Successfully, we placed the full marine team that managed to mobilise the vessels, from manufacturing factory in Singapore to Brazil, and operate them offshore Brazil, still in operation nowadays.
