The P-69, the 8th oil and gas production unit installed in the Lula/Iracema projects, in the pre-salt of the Santos basin, has produced its first oil, adding to the production ramp-up in the country’s most productive oil and gas field.
The floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit is the second in a group of four replicant units specifically designed to operate in the Santos basin pre-salt projects. It has a capacity to process up to 150 thousand daily barrels of oil and 6 million cubic meters of natural gas, which brings the total installed oil production capacity to 1.1 mln barrels a day.
The P-69 operates in the Lula Extreme South area, at approximately 290 km off the coast of the state of Rio de Janeiro, at a water depth of 2,150 meters. It will expectedly be connect to eight producer and seven injector wells.
