SBM Offshore invests in new headquarters in Rio
SBM Offshore inaugurated on Wednesday (2) its new headquarters in Rio de Janeiro, in an event dedicated to customers and partners. There are 2,100 square meters, in which more than 200 employees from the Projects, Operations, Engineering and Support areas are concentrated in the newly constructed Corporate Promenade Building, in the Center of Rio.
"Our intention was to bring the whole team together on a single floor, promoting integration in a modern and sustainable environment, generating synergy between the different areas. The new regional headquarters highlights our continued investment and is another sign of our long-term commitment to the country and Brazilians, "explains SBM Offshore President in Brazil, Oliver Kassam.
The celebrations for the new office also mark a milestone for the company: 2017 marks the 20 years of permanent presence of SBM Offshore in the country and the delivery of 15 FPSOs. The company currently owns and operates seven vessels on behalf of its customers in Brazil, which contribute to the production of about 25% of the national oil, and about 45% of the pre-salt oil.
Today, the company employs around 1,300 employees in the country, including offshore operations and offices in Rio, Santos and Vitória, as well as in Brasa, a joint venture with Synergy Energy in Niterói.
