Petrobras inaugurates new laboratory

Petrobras Research Center36, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Brazilian president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva and chairman of Petrobras, Jose Sergio Gabrielli, Petrobras and the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) inaugurated the Laboratory of Corrosion and Non-Destructive Testing, in Cidade Universitaria campus last week in Rio de Janeiro.

The laboratory will be one of the world's most advanced for testing on corrosion, material inspection and soldering, the highlights being testing and research needed for oil production in the pre-salt layer.

The partnership between Petrobras and UFRJ has allowed the laboratory to receive 26 million reais (US$ 11.9 million) in investment by the state-owned giant.

By 2011, investment should total around 30 million reais.

The construction of the laboratory is part of Petrobras' strategy of investing in experimental infrastructure and human resource formation in Brazilian universities and research institutes, under a model of sustainable relations, by means of the establishment of networks for technological partnership in areas of strategic interest to the company.

Petrobras has invested around 400 million reais per year, since 2006, in 36 different thematic networks, involving around 100 universities and research institutes across the country said a report by Brazzilmag.
