Brasco, a Wilson Sons Group company, has entered into a partnership with APM Terminals Pecém to set up a temporary logistics base at the Pecém Industrial and Port Complex. It will be the first offshore port support operation carried out in the port of Ceará.

Scheduled to start in the first half of 2020, the logistics base will support the drilling of a well in block CE-M-717. The location of the well is in the Ceará Basin and it will be operated by Premier Oil, a British oil company. Storage of cargo, water supplies and other consumables for the offshore platform will be available. Additionally, waste management and tank cleaning services will also be offered.

The Pecém Industrial and Port Complex is located between the municipalities of São Gonçalo do Amarante and Caucaia, 60 kilometers from Fortaleza. Last year, the port terminal handled 18.1 million tons of cargo. A new berth is also expected to begin operating in the first quarter of 2020, to support the offshore operations.
