Petrobras expects the P-52 semi-submersible platform to start producing oil in August. A month later, the P-54 floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel will start output, the spokesperson said.
Each platform will have installed capacity of 180,000b/d and operate in the Campos basin's Roncador field.
Meanwhile, Petrobras will restart in two weeks a tender to build the P-55 semi-submersible platform, the spokesperson said.
The company cancelled the first round of bidding to build the unit in January because offers were too high. P-55 will operate in Campos' Jubarte field in 2011.
Bidding will start in July for the P-57 FPSO, designed for operation in Roncador in 2010, according to the spokesperson.
