Petrobras has commenced oil and natural gas production at its P-75 platform in the pre-salt area of the Santos Basin, offshore Brazil.

The P-75 floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) platform is located in the Búzios field at a water depth of 2,000m.

The FPSO will be able to produce up to 150,000 barrels of oil and six million cubic metres of natural gas, through ten producing wells.

According to Petrobras, the oil production will be offloaded by relief vessels while gas will be drained by pre-salt pipeline routes.

Prior to P-75, the company started production at three other platforms this year, including 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.

“The FPSO will be able to produce up to 150,000 barrels of oil and six million cubic metres of natural gas, through ten producing wells.”

The P-69 FPSO platform began production last month.

The company expects to bring onstream two more platforms, including the P-67 in the Lula field and the P-76, which is anticipated to go to the Búzios field next month.

Petrobras noted that the six systems will contribute to the increase of the company’s anticipated production of its 2018-2022 Business and Management Plan.

Discovered in 2010, Búzios field began production using P-74 in April. P-75 represents the second unit installed in the field.

The company believes the field has high production potential and plans to add three more platforms to it by 2021.

The remaining platforms are also expected to have the same production capacity as the P-75.
