P-66 FPSO Begins Production in Brazil’s Santos Basin

Royal Dutch Shell informed that the deep-water production has started at the FPSO P-66, located in the Brazilian pre-salt Santos Basin.

Positioned in 2,150-meter water depth, the P-66 can process up to 150,000 barrels of oil and 6 million cubic meters of natural gas per day.

The unit is the first in a series of standardized vessels operated by Petrobras to begin production within the BM-S-11 block consortium and the seventh to produce within the consortium overall, the company explained.

“Achieving production at Lula South is an important accomplishment in the Santos Basin, and we recognize Petrobras’ delivery of this critical milestone,” said Andy Brown, upstream director for Shell. “The consortium has additional FPSOs in this series planned over the next three years.”

Shell has a 25-percent stake in the consortium developing the Lula field in the BM-S-11 block. Petrobras operates the field with a 65-percent interest, and Galp, through its subsidiary Petrogal Brasil, holds the remaining 10-percent interest.
