Brazilian oil company Petrobras has informed that the P-66 FPSO has left the Brasfels shipyard in Angra dos Reis, Rio de Janeiro and is on its way the Lula Sul module in the Lula field.

Petrobras on Monday said the FPSO would reach the location at the Santos Basin pre-salt “in the next few days.” The production system will come online after the vessel has been moored and the first production well has been connected.

The P-66 unitis the Lula Consortium’s first FPSO to be deployed in the Santos Basin pre-salt. It was assembled at the Keppel’s Brasfels shipyard in Angra dos Reis, where the equipment and systems were also tested.

The FPSO will separate the oil from the gas and water during the production process, storing it in tanks, and finally transferring it into oil tankers, which will then transport it. P-66 will be connected to 10 production wells and 8 injector wells, and it will be able to process up to 150,000 barrels of oil per day and 6 million cubic meters of natural gas per day.

Lula field is located within the BM-S-11 concession area, operated by Petrobras (65%) in partnership with BG E&P Brasil (25%), a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell plc (25%), and Petrogal Brasil (10%).
