These nine platforms will help Petrobras boost production

Petrobras, a Brazilian oil company, in a race to become one of the five largest oil producers in the world by 2030, has last year reached the unprecedented mark of nine platforms delivered, which will add a million barrels per day to their production capacity.

The Company presents the information about these nine platforms completed in 2013:

1) P-58

An FPSO-type platform, P-58 became operational in March 2014. Installed at about 85 km off the coast of Espírito Santo, in water depths of 1400 meters, this platform has a daily processing capacity of 180,000 barrels of oil and 6 million cubic meters of natural gas from pre-salt and post-salt reservoirs.

2) P-55

A semi-submersible type platform, P-55 is the largest of its kind in Brazil. It went into production in late 2013, at the Roncador field (Campos Basin), anchored at a depth of about 1800 meters. It is capable of processing up to 180,000 barrels of oil and of compressing 4 million cubic meters of gas per day.

Learn how P-55 was assembled.

3) P-63

An FPSO-type platform, P-63 went on stream in November 2013. It is capable of processing 140,000 barrels of oil and 1 million cubic meters of gas, and of injecting 340,000 barrels of water per day. P-63 makes up the first production system at Papa-Terra (Campos Basin), which also includes P-61 and SS-88 TAD. Learn more about P-63.

4) FPSO Cidade de Paraty

FPSO Cidade de Paraty went into production in the Santos Basin pre-salt region (Lula Nordeste area) in June 2013, anchored at a depth of 2120 meters, some 300 km off the coast. It is capable of processing up to 120,000 barrels of oil and of compressing 5 million cubic meters of gas per day.

5) FPSO Cidade de Itajaí

FPSO Cidade de Itajaí went into production in February 2013, in the Santos Basin post-salt region (Baúna and Piracicaba Field), 210 km off the coast. It is capable of processing up to 80,000 barrels of light oil and 2 million cubic meters of gas per day.

6) FPSO Cidade de São Paulo

FPSO Cidade de São Paulo went into production in January 2013, in the Santos Basin pre-salt region (Sapinhoá Field). It is capable of processing up to 120,000 barrels of oil and 5 million cubic meters of gas per day.

7) P-61

The first TLWP (Tension Leg Wellhead Platform) type rig to be built and operated in Brazil, P-61 will operate in the Papa-Terra field (Campos Basin) with P-63. Together, the units will have capacity to produce 120,000 barrels of oil per day. It is forecast to go on stream in the second half of 2014.

8) P-62

Installed about 125 km offshore, in the Campos Basin, at water depths of 1600 meters, this FPSO-type platform is expected to go into production in the first half of 2014. It is capable of processing up to 180,000 barrels of oil and 6 million cubic meters of gas per day from post-salt reservoirs.

Check out the construction and assembly process of P-62.

9) SS-88 TAD

The SS-88 TAD (Tender Assisted Drilling) semi-submersible unit will be anchored next to P-61, in the Papa-Terra field (Campos Basin), to provide power, accommodations, drilling fluid storage space, and support systems.
