From the port of Santa Marta, the supply ships Bourbon Sapphire and Bourbon Front, which will constantly have the mission of supplying exploration equipment, tools, specialized materials, and others to the exploratory platform Petrobras 10 thousand that will be arriving in the coming weeks from Brazil.

This basic operation promises to be a dynamist of the local economy, generating more than 80 jobs directly, mostly local labor and will concentrate in the city, in the purchases of food and water that will be supplied to the exploratory platform.

The maritime terminal has designated an area within the Port, exactly the berth number 5, for exclusive use of Petrobras and its off shore project, where the multinational will permanently have mud for drilling, silos for cement, wand and ventonite, as well as space for the exploration equipment, which will be loaded to the supply ships by the Liebher multipurpose crane that the Port has.
