  • What's new in production

    Petrobras has proven its new BCSS subsea centrifuge pump at Jubarte Field, 130 mi offshore Espiritu Santo state, Brazil. The new pump system has been operating for over 100 days with flows of up to 24,000 bpd of 17°API oil, according to the company. The system is installed in the JUB-6 well in about 4,300 ft of water and uses two 1,200-hp pumps. The new pumps were developed in conjunction with the company’s suppliers. The pumps are expected to increase the average system operation period to 4-6 yr from the present 2-3 yr, cutting costs and system shutdowns. The field is producing to the P-34 FPSO, which can handle 60,000 bopd. The vessel is expected to be at Jubarte Field until 2011. After that time, the vessel will be relocated and the FPSO P-57 will come on station to process increased oil flows.
