Petrobras starts production on platform P-66 in Santos Basin's pre-salt Lula Field

5/19/2017

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Petrobras and its partners in the BM-S-11 Consortium have started producing oil and natural gas from the Santos Basin’s pre-salt Lula Sul field. Platform P-66, the first FPSO owned by the consortium and the seventh facility in the Lula field, was brought on stream. 

Located some 290 km off the coast of Rio de Janeiro state at a water depth of 2,150 meters, P-66 has capacity to process 150,000 bopd, compress 6 MMcmg, and was initially tied back to the Lula field through producing well 7-LL-60D.

Lula Sul is the first system to start production this year, in line with the Company's 2017-2021 Business and Management Plan. 

This system joins the eleven other systems already operating in the Campos and Santos Basin pre-salt layer, which are: Lula Pilot (FPSO Cidade de Angra dos Reis), Sapinhoá Pilot (FPSO Cidade de São Paulo), Lula Nordeste Pilot (FPSO Cidade de Paraty), Iracema Sul (FPSO Cidade de Mangaratiba), Sapinhoá Norte (FPSO Cidade de Ilhabela), Iracema Norte (FPSO Cidade de Itaguaí), Lula Alto (FPSO Cidade de Maricá), Lula Central (FPSO Cidade de Saquarema), Lapa (FPSO Cidade de Caraguatatuba), and FPSO Cidade de Anchieta and P-58, both in Parque das Baleias. 

The Lula field lies within concession BM-S-11 operated by Petrobras (65%) in partnership with BG E&P Brasil, a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell plc (25%) and Petrogal Brasil (10%).
