Petrobras reached a new records from pres-salt


Petroleumworld.com 02 16 2017

Petrobras has achieved two new production records from its pre-salt reservoirs: a 1.28 MMb/d monthly production record and the 1.34 MMb/d record achieved on 4 January. 

Combined oil and natural gas production operated by Petrobras also reached a new record at 1.59 MMboe/d. 

Petrobras said the results are mainly due to production increase in the new wells interconnected to the FPSOs  Cidade de Caraguatatuba  (in the Lapa field);  Cidade de Saquarema, Cidade de Mangaratiba,  and  Cidade de Itaguaí  (in the Lula field); and  Cidade de São Paulo  (in the Sapinhoá field); all in Santos Basin. 

Petrobras said higher operating performance at platform P-58, in Parque das Baleias, in the Campos Basin, was also a highlight. 

Petrobras' total oil and natural gas production in January was 2.86 MMboe/d, of which 2.74 MMboe/d were produced in Brazil and 120,000 boe/d abroad.

Average production in Brazil was 2.23 MMb/d, 3% lower than December, 2016. This result was mainly due to a scheduled stoppage of platform P-40, in the Marlim Sul field, and maintenance in one of the producing wells in FPSO Cidade de Anchieta , in Parque das Baleias, both in the Campos Basin.

In January, natural gas production in Brazil, excluding the liquefied volume, was 81.4 Mcm/d, in line with the production of December, 2016.

Petrobras' January production outside Brazil reached 69,000 b/d, a 13% increase on December. The increase was particularly due to resumed operations in the Agbami field, in Nigeria, after a scheduled stoppage that took place in December.

Natural gas production was 8.6 Mcm/d, 16% lower than the volume produced in the previous month. This decrease occurred mostly because of the demand reduction for the gas from Bolivia.
