Brazil’s Largest Semi Sets Sail to Roncador Field

Brazilian oil company Petrobras has informed that its P-55 platform yesterday set sail towards Roncador field in the Campos Basin.

Following the completion of all the necessary works and tests on the platform, the unit, on October 6, left the Rio Grande Shipyard.

With 52 000 tonnes, P-55 is the largest semi-submersible platform built in Brazil. It will start production in December 2013.  With the capacity to produce 180,000 barrels of oil and treat 4 million cubic meters of gas per day, the facility is one of the biggest platforms of this type in the world.

The platform will, once at the Roncador location, be connected to 17 wells. Water depth at the site is 1,800 meters.

The 130 m tall structure is expected to reach the Campos basin in around 11 days.
