P-34 FPSO Regains Full Balance

Petrobras has re-established full balance to the listing P-34 FPSO. Wednesday evening technicians were able to start a power generator used to run water pumps. This allowed 6,500 cubic meters of seawater to be pumped into two empty tanks to right the FPSO.

An investigation into the cause of the power failure is underway. Petrobras technicians and experts from the Navy will be conducting the investigation. It was producing 34,000 barrels of oil a day and 195,000 cubic meters of gas in the Campos Basin area.
