Petrobras’s platform vessel, P-71, achieved its maximum production level of 150 thousand barrels of oil per day last Wednesday (11/8), from the pre-salt layer of the Santos Basin. This unit is an FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offloading) and the only production platform in Itapu, 200 km off the coast of Rio de Janeiro. This field is fully operated by Petrobras, under two regimes, “Onerous Concession” and “Shared Production”. Pré-Sal Petróleo (PPSA) manages the Shared Production contract, and is a party in the Onerous Concession contract.
The P-71 is the sixth FPSO on a replicated template installed in the Santos Basin. This set of vessels has a standard engineering design and large production capacity. It also includes some advanced technology that reduces greenhouse gas emissions, such as, for example, what is known as the FGRS (“Flare Gas Recovery System”), which makes use of the gas generated during the production process and reduces the amount that needs to be flared off and released into the atmosphere.
“Petrobras has an excellent combination of skilled technical staff and cutting-edge technology, which has helped to increase pre-salt production considerably. This combination benefits not only the company, because its operations are successful, but it is also important for the growth of the industry and the contribution by our suppliers”, declared Carlos José Travassos, the Director of Engineering, Technology and Innovation at Petrobras.
