Brazil: First Oil Flows from FPSO OSX-1 to Shuttle Tanker
On 28th March, OSX concluded its first offloading procedure, whereby crude oil stored in FPSO OSX-1 storage tanks was pumped to a shuttle vessel, totalling approximately 600 thousand barrels for its anchor client OGX, an oil and gas company responsible for the largest private-sector exploratory campaign in Brazil.
On January 31, FPSO OSX-1 successfully initiated the production of first oil from Waimea accumulation. The FPSO OSX-1 is in charge of carrying out the Extended Well Test on the Waimea accumulation, in the Campos Basin, through well OGX-26HP, located 80km off the coast, at a water depth of 130 meters.
The FPSO OSX-1 is the first floating, production, storage and offloading unit to integrate the OSX fleet. OSX-1 was built in Korea and customized in Singapore, at Keppel’s shipyard. It is 271,75 meters long, and has the capacity to store up to 900 thousand barrels of oil. The FPSO OSX-1 has been leased to OGX for a period of 20 years, and is operated by OSX through its subsidiary OSX Serviços Operacionais Ltda.
