Petrobras begins oil production in the Bauna field
BY JEFFREY T. LEWIS
RIO DE JANEIRO -- Petrobras said that it began production in the Bauna offshore field and plans to ramp up output in the coming months.
The Bauna field is located in the BMS-40 block of the Santos basin. The production platform is currently connected to just one well, 9-SPS-88, but will be linked to another 10 wells in the coming months, the company said.
It was the third new production unit started by Petrobras in 2013.
