Brazil: FPSO Cidade de Itajai Arrives at Santos Basin
Petrobras announces that FPSO Cidade de Itajaí arrived, on the morning of Dec. 29, at its definitive location to be integrated to the Baúna and Piracaba field production system, which is in the Santos basin post-salt area.
Chartered from OOG-TKP (the consortium formed by Odebrecht Óleo e Gás & Teekay Petrojarl), the vessel is being prepared for anchoring and is expected to start producing yet this month.
The FPSO-type unit, which produces, processes, and stores oil, is capable of processing up to 80,000 barrels of light oil and of compressing 2 million cubic meters of natural gas per day. The platform will be interconnected to six production and five injector wells, of which four used for water and one for gas.
