Petrobras says local manufacturing can be done in Libra

After criticism from domestic industry regarding contracting services abroad for production in the pre-salt Libra area, state-owned Petrobras said it is possible that part of the equipment is manufactured in Brazil, according to data from the newspaper O Globo.

The oil company explained that the partners of the Libra consortium believe that it is possible, even with foreign contracting, to manufacture and interconnect the modules of the platform in Brazil. Petrobras pointed out that this was done in the last four platforms in operation in the pre-salt.

If the information is confirmed construction may generate around 25 thousand direct and indirect jobs, according to industry estimates.
