Brazilian oil company Petrobras has started the production of oil and natural gas in the Búzios 2 area, in the pre-salt of Santos Basin, by means of P-75 FPSO, which is the second unit installed in the Búzios field off Brazil. 

The floating production, storage, and offloading unit of oil and gas (FPSO) is located approximately 210 km off the coast of the state of Rio de Janeiro, at a water depth of 2,000 meters.

Petrobras said on Monday that, with a daily capacity to process up to 150,000 barrels of oil and compress up to 6 million cubic meters of natural gas, P-75 would produce through ten producing wells, also using seven injection wells. Relief vessels will be used to offload the oil production, while gas will be drained by pre-salt pipeline routes.

According to the oil company, the P-75 is the fourth platform to start production in 2018, after the FPSO Cidade Campos dos Goytacazes in the Tartaruga Verde field, the P-69 in the Lula field and the P-74 in the Búzios field.

These platforms, together with P-67, which is already located in the Lula field, and P-76, which should go to the Búzios field in December, will conclude the six systems planned for this year in Brazil, contributing to the increase of Petrobras’ production in the horizon of the 2018-2022 Business and Management Plan.
