Brasil Supply was launched in 2002 to provide logistics services to offshore operations, technical services of oil, water and gas treatment fluids, and environmental services for the oil and gas industry. Their headquarters is located in the State of Espirito Santo, based in the cities of Anchieta and Cariacica, and they also have offices in the State of Rio de Janeiro, in cities of Rio das Ostras, Rio de Janeiro, and Duque de Caxias. Further south, they also operate in the city of Itajaí, in the State of Santa Catarina, and are developing a significant operation in the Northeast of the country, in association with other major service providers.

The main shareholders that control Brasil Supply S.A are Cotia Trading (A major Brazilian trading company), Petrobras Distribuidora and Cepemar (Specialized in environmental engineering).

Brasil Supply offers integrated solutions in drilling fluids, including the acquisition, formulation, development, storage and transportation of their products as well as supplying qualified labor.

The company owns and operates one of the largest drilling fluid manufacturing plants in Brazil located in the city of Anchieta in the state of Espirito Santo.

Recently Brasil Supply has entered the offshore market and in March 17 will launch their first crew boat, the BSCO 1 in Rio. It will be the first of a total of 11 vessels it will receive in the next four years in a $250 million investment, 80% of which will come from the FMM (Merchant Marine Fund, a special BNDES fund supporting ship construction investments).  All of these vessels are already contracted to Petrobras for service in Northeast Brazil.

The fleet will be composed of 7 crew boats being built at the Arpoador shipyard in Angra dos Reis in southern Rio de Janeiro. Another 4 PSVs were ordered from the EISA shipyard, also in Rio with a delivery date set for 2014. The company has ambitious plans to expand their fleet of crew and support vessels to 60 ships in the next 15 years.

Today Brasil Supply´s main businesses are residue treatment 70% and the rest from drilling fluids, with a total income of around $30 million.
