Galp’s 9th Brazilian pre-salt unit starts production

The P-67 brings the installed processing capacity of the Lula/Iracema projects to a combined 1.3 million barrels of oil and 56 cubic meters of natural gas. The FPSO will expectedly connect to nine producer wells and six injector wells.

Galp has, as of this morning, an additional oil and gas floating production unit operating in the Lula/Iracema projects, the ninth such unit brought online in little more than eight years in one of the most prolific and competitive oil and gas regions worldwide. 

The new unit, known as P-67, operates in the Lula North area, in the pre-salt of the Santos basin and has a daily processing capacity of up to 150 thousand barrels of oil and 6 million cubic meters of natural gas. The FPSO will expectedly connect to nine producer wells and six injector wells.

The P-67’s first oil successfully completes the initial large infrastructure development investments in Lula/Iracema by the BM-S-11 consortium, which, aside from Galp, with a 10% position, includes operator Petrobras, with 65%, and Shell Brasil Petróleo Ltda., holder of the remaining 25%.

The nine units brought online since the beginning of the current decade yield a combined daily processing capacity of up to 1.3 million barrels of oil and 56 million cubic meters of natural gas.
