Petrobras signed five agreements, for the total amount of R$ 2,89 bn, for the construction of the Abreu e Lima Refinery in Brazil's Pernambuco state.
The ceremony was attended by the governor of Pernambuco, Eduardo Campos.

The biggest contract, worth R$ 3.4 bn, is for the services required to build the Retarded Coking Units -- UCR (U-21 and U-22), including the substations, Control Rooms, and Caustic Regeneration Treatment Sections (U-26 and U-27). The contract was signed with the Camargo Correa -- CNEC consortium, formed by Construcoes e Comercio Camargo Correa and CNEC Engenharia.
Another contract that was signed was for the implementation of the Diesel (U-31, U-32) and Naphtha (U-33 and U-34) Hydrotreatment Units and of the Hydrogen Generation Units (U-35 and U-36). This contract, signed with the CONEST-UHDT consortium (formed by Odebrecht Plantas Industriais e Participacoes and Construtora) is worth R$ 3.19 bn.

The contract for the construction of the Atmospheric Distillation Units -- UDA (U-11 and U-12), worth a total of R$ 1.48 bn, meanwhile, was signed with the RNEST-CONTEST Consortium (Odebrecht Plantas Industriais e Participacoes and Construtora OAS).
The scope of these three contracts includes the supply of materials, the partial supply of equipment, civil construction, and electromechanical assembly, preservation, conditioning, testing, pre-operation, start-up, operation assistance, technical assistance, and training services.

In addition, a contract was signed for the deployment of the refinery's product receipt and shipment pipelines -- including consistency analyses services for the basic project and for the executive project, material and equipment supply, civil construction, electrical installations, electromechanical assembly, preservation, conditioning, testing, and pre-operation and assisted operation support services. The contract was signed with the Conduto -- Egesa consortium (Conduto -- Companhia Nacional de Dutos and Egesa Engenharia) and is worth R$ 649mm.
The fifth contract that was signed was for civil infrastructure services and includes the clean rainwater draining system, small concrete bridges, street construction layout and paving, storage areas and gates. This service will be carried out by the Construcap-Progen consortium (Construcap CCPS Engenharia e Comercio and PROGEN Projetos Gerenciamento e Engenharia) and is worth R$ 120 mm.

The importance of these contracts for the deployment of the Abreu e Lima Refinery shows Petrobras's proactive stance.
After extensive contract renegotiation, the company believes all challenges in the current global scenario will be overcome, thousands of jobs generated, and the Brazilian industry developed. Another 12,000 jobs will be generated in this new phase, which begins with the signing of these major contracts.
