3) What are Sete Brasil assets’ technical specifications?

a. 23 drillship type units: are regular shaped ships with a derrick at its center located above an opening in the hull (moon pool) used by the drill string. It provides a faster transit speed and higher loading and storage capacities. This kind of platform is most suited for exploratory well drilling, where a larger quantity of materials are required to be brought along due to the unknown nature of the soil to be drilled.

b. 6 semi-submersible type units: are equipped with submersible floating devices that provides reduced wave and drift motion effects. The deck, also called "main deck", remains above the waterline out of reach of waves, supported by the rigs’ legs or columns. Its deck surface is usually larger than that of a drillship. The derrick is generally located in the center of the rig and an opening in the center of its deck is used by the drill string. They are usually recommended for field development campaigns.

Each vessel is designed in accordance with international market leaders designs where its equipment and components are supplied by leading and renowned suppliers of the oil and gas industry in order to ensure quality, availability of spare parts and post -sales support for future maintenance needs.

All units are designed for drilling in ultra-deep  water depth up to 3,000 meters and a total depth up to 10,000 meters.
