SBM OFFSHORE and FPSO Sepetiba: A Success Story

In the world of Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC), project delivery often faces challenges such as cost overruns and schedule delays. Konnect3D, with its innovative Digital Twin Platform, is revolutionizing the way industry professionals tackle these problems.

One of our most recent success stories involves SBM OFFSHORE, a long-standing customer of ours. They have successfully delivered the FPSO Sepetiba using our platform, marking a significant achievement in the industry.


SBM Offshore's FPSO Sepetiba Sets Sail to the Mero Field, Marking a Milestone in Digital Twin Integration and Offshore Operations

The FPSO Sepetiba, SBM Offshore’s third Fast4Ward® FPSO, sailed away on June 16, 2023, from the BOMESC shipyard, China, after successful completion of the topsides integration and onshore commissioning phases. This achievement was made possible through the use of our Digital Twin Platform, which seamlessly integrates all data types and streamlines workflows.

The FPSO has commenced its transit to the Mero field in the Santos Basin offshore Brazil, located 180 kilometers offshore Rio de Janeiro. SBM Offshore has a contract with Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. (Petrobras) for the 22.5 years lease and operation of FPSO Sepetiba. First oil is expected in the second half of 2023.

The FPSO will have the capacity to produce up to 180,000 barrels of oil per day and has storage capacity of 1,400,000 barrels of oil. This project is a testament to the power and efficiency of our platform, and we are proud to have been a part of it.
