Petrobras Starts Production at Platform P-56

Petrobras has commenced production from the P-56 platform at the Marlim Sul field in the Campos Basin. The unit began production through well 7-MLS-163HPRJS and will potentially generate around 16,000 bopd.

The P-56 platform, installed in a water depth of 5,479 feet (1,670 meters), is designed to handle up to 100 Mcf/d when it reaches maximum capacity, expected to take place in the first quarter of 2012.

The vessel will have the capacity to process and treat up to 6 MMcm/d of natural gas. P-56 will interconnect to 21 wells, of which 10 are producers and 11 water injectors. The produced oil will flow through a pipeline to platform P-38, which is an FSO, located 12 miles (20 kilometers) from the platform. Then, oil will transfer to shuttle tankers and the natural gas delivered through a gas pipeline to the Cabiunas terminal.

The P-56 vessel is 410 feet (125 meters) long, 361 feet (110 meters) wide, 449 feet (137 meters) tall and has a total weight of more than 54 thousand tons (48,988 tonnes).

Petrobras, the operator, owns 100% interest of the field.
