Brazilian oil & gas player hits daily production record shortly after well restart

Brazilian oil and gas player Enauta has reached its new daily production record after it restarted production from a well that was temporarily shut down.

Enauta temporarily halted the production from the 7-ATL-2HP-RJS well on the Atlanta field in March, days after completing the preventive maintenance of the water-cooling system of the FPSO Petrojarl I which works at the field.

On 17 April, the Brazilian company confirmed that the production from the 7-ATL-2HP-RJS well was restarted, following the installation of the new pump on the seabed.

Currently, the daily production at the Atlanta field is 25,7 thousand barrels. Enauta reported that it had thus reached the mark of 32 thousand barrels of oil equivalent produced per day, considering the combined production of the Atlanta and Manati fields, representing a new daily production record for the company.

Located in block BS-4 in the Santos Basin, at a 1,500-meter water depth, the Atlanta field is operated by Enauta Energia, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the company, which also has a 100 per cent interest in this asset. 

As a reminder, Enauta kicked off a three-well drilling campaign on the field at the end of 2022. The first well, which is in the connection phase to the FPSO Petrojarl I, should start production this, when the FPSO will have three wells online, which is its maximum capacity.
