Petrobras’ P-55 begins operations in Campos basin' s Roncador field

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -- Petrobras’ P-55 platform, one of the strategic projects in the company’s 2013-2017 Business and Management Plan, started-up the last Tuesday (12/31/13) in the Campos basin’s Roncador field.

P-55 is part of Roncador´s field Module 3 project and will be connected to 17 wells, 11 of which are oil and gas production and 6 water injection.

Oil and natural gas will be transported from the platform via submarine pipelines connected to the unit till the oil and gas offloading system of the Campos basin.

P-55 is a semi-submersible unit installed at a water depth of 1,800 m, with a per day capacity for processing 180,000 barrels of oil, compressing 6,000,000 cubic m of natural gas and injecting 290,000 barrels of water.

Weighing 52,000 tons and with an area of 10,000 sq m, P-55 is the biggest semi-submersible platform ever built in Brazil and one of the biggest of its kind worldwide.

Construction work on P-55 is part of the Brazilian Federal Government’s Growth Acceleration Plan – PAC. The construction and integration of platform modules were carried out entirely in Brazil, boosting the local content rate to 79%. Construction work generated 5,000 direct and 15,000 indirect jobs.

The new unit will operate alongside platforms P-52 and P-54, already installed in Roncador field, and with platform P-62, that left the Atlântico Sul Shipyard, in Ipojuca (state of Pernambuco) on 12/30/13, and is moving toward its location in Module IV of the field.
