Lapa Field Production Begins Off Brazil

Petrobras and its partners in the BM-S-9 consortium started the oil and natural gas production through the FPSO Cidade de Caraguatatuba in the Lapa field, located in the Santos Basin pre-salt layer.

This is the third unit to enter operation in the pre-salt this year, the company noted. In addition, Lapa is the third pre-salt field of the Santos Basin to start production, after Lula and Sapinhoá.

Located approximately 270 km from the coast of the São Paulo state, the FPSO Cidade de Caraguatatuba has the capacity to process 100 thousand barrels of oil and compress 5 million m3 of gas daily, and is interconnected to the Lapa field through production well 7-LPA-1D.

The Lapa field is located at the BM-S-9 concession, operated by Petrobras (45%), in partnership with BG E&P Brasil – a subsidiary company of Royal Dutch Shell plc (30%) – and Repsol Sinopec Brasil (25%).
