This record resulted, mainly, from onshore field production maintenance and from three new wells, interconnected to the P-50 platform in the Albacora Leste, in the Campos Basin, going online. With them, the P-50 has already reached a production of some 150,000 barrels a day. Meanwhile, the connection of four other wells to the same platform is nearing completion. When they kick production off, in the next few weeks, the P-50's production is expected to top its maximum production capacity, programmed at 180,000 barrels a day.
This achievement is a decisive step in order for Petrobras to reach its goal of producing 2,000,000 barrels a day, foreseen to be reached by the end of the year, when two more platforms will go online in the Campos Basin: the P-34, in the Jubarte field, which will occur in November, with the potential to produce 60,000 barrels/day; and the Cidade do Rio de Janeiro FPSO, in the Espadarte field, slated for December, capable of producing up to 100,000 barrels per day.
