• Brazil-sized

    Every day, the oil and gas industry’s best minds put more than 150 years of experience to work to help our customers achieve lasting success. We have the people, capabilities and vision to serve the needs of a challenging and evolving industry.

    We’re proud to locally manufacture and repair equipment. We also hire locally, complying with and often exceeding local content requirements.

    NOV is pleased to have served Brazil’s oil and gas business since 1986. We are a family of almost 2,000 people working in our facilities in Macaé, Campos, Betim, Jaceaba, Santos, Serra, Recife and others. We’re proud to locally manufacture and repair equipment. We also hire locally, complying with and often exceeding local content requirements.

    We design, manufacture, service and repair most NOV products in Brazil, products from all three of our Segments – NOV Rig Systems, NOV Wellbore Technologies and NOV Completion & Production Solutions. We’re proud to offer our customers a world-class, high-volume manufacturing facility in Campos, which successfully delivered the very first flexible pipe to a major operator in October 2014.

    This operator has recognized our Tuboscope facility in Macaé as one of their best services suppliers in Brazil. This is one of our largest inspection and repair facilities in the world, with the ability to repair risers of up to 90 feet.

    We’re also proud to offer our Technical College and Training Center in Macaé, the only one in Latin America. Our college uses high-technology simulators and other quality teaching tools to train over 2,000 students to manage our NOV Rig Systems equipment. Our program strikes a balance between theory and practical knowledge, led by instructors who are internationally recognized by Opito, SQA and IADC.

    NOV is currently building a facility that will house both aftermarket support and riser manufacturing to continually improve our services while supporting Brazil’s local industry and communities. We work hard every day to provide best-in-class, reliable solutions and technology to our partners across the country.
