Brazilian oil and gas player Enauta reported on March 15 that the flexible pipeline system, the last pending subsea system equipment for the FPSO Atlanta production, had shipped to Brazil.

The delivery is expected by the end of the month.

First oil from the floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessel Atlanta is expected in August, as per the initial project’s schedule, Enauta said.

To remind, Enauta is set to replace the FPSO Petrojarl I working on the Atlanta field with the FPSO Atlanta, which the company bought for Atlanta’s Full Development System (FDS) in 2022. The naming ceremony for the FPSO Atlanta was held at the Dubai Drydocks World shipyard on December 13, 2023.

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% interest in this asset. The field has been producing since 2018.

The Atlanta field reached an average daily production of 21.4 thousand boe/day in February 2024, in line with the previous month. Since the resumption of production in November 2023, more than 2.2 million boe were produced.
