August 16, 2022 [ Storage Terminals Magazine ] – In June, Petrobras reached an average monthly production of 616 000 barrels of oil per day (bpd) in the Búzios oil field, in the pre-salt layer of the Santos Basin.
This is the highest average monthly production volume ever achieved by the field since it started operating in April 2018, representing an operational efficiency of 95 percent.
Of the total produced, Petrobras accounts for 91.7 percent of this volume (564 thousand bpd), and the other partners for 8.3 percent (51 thousand bpd). The result was achieved with the contribution of the four platforms in operation in the field: P-74, P-75, P-76 and P-77.
The company plans to put into production the fifth platform in the Búzios field, the FPSO Almirante Barroso, in 2023.
The unit will have the capacity to produce up to 150 000 bpd and process up to six million m³ of gas. With the new system, the prospect is that the Búzios field will reach the mark of 33 percent of Petrobras’ oil production in 2026.
