    Crowley in deepwater venture in Brazil

    News // July 13, 2001
    Crowley Marine Services and Brazil's Triunfo Operadora Portuaria Ltda say they intend to form a joint venture to operate a deepwater logistics base in the State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

    GAIA Comercial Exterior will participate as Crowley's Brazilian representative for energy logistics services.

    The deepwater logistics base will be located at Triunfo's marine terminal on Guanabara Bay and will manage the complex logistics and transportation required to support deepwater exploration and production in the Campos and Santos basins of Brazil.

    The base will have more than 300m of dock space with 7.5m draft, open and covered warehousing, cranes, and material handling equipment.

    The Crowley-Triunfo joint venture will provide storage and inventory control of oilfield equipment and co-ordination of marine transportation between the base and offshore drilling and production areas in the Campos and Santos Basins, as well as co-ordination of inland transportation to the base.

    The base will be staffed primarily by Brazilian employees.
