Petrobras announced that production platform P-62, one of the strategic projects of its 2014-2018 Business and Management Plan, started-up on this Monday, May 12, in Roncador field, Campos Basin.

P-62, installed at a water depth of 1,600 meters, is an integral part of the Module 4 project of Roncador field. Twenty-two wells, 14 of them oil and gas production and eight water injection will be interconnected to the platform.

The FPSO (floating production, storage and offloading) unit has the capacity to process up to 180 thousand barrels of oil and 6 million cubic meters of natural gas per day.

The platform will export oil via shuttle tankers and natural gas will be transferred via a gas pipeline connecting the platform to the gas distribution network of Campos Basin.

The construction work created 5,000 direct jobs, 15,000 indirect ones, and reached a local content rate of 63%.

Construction of the platform’s oil processing and gas compression modules took place in Rio de Janeiro. These modules were transported to the shipyard Estaleiro Atlântico Sul (EAS), in Ipojuca - PE, where the electrical panels and main power generation modules were built, as well as where all the modules were integrated to the platform’s hull.

The new unit will operate in conjunction with production platforms P-52, P-54 and P-55, already installed in Roncador field.

Technical Specifications of P-62:
Oil processing capacity: 180 thousand barrels/day;
Gas treatment and compression capacity: 6 million m3/day;
Local content: 63%;
Injection water treatment capacity: 42 thousand m³/day;
Electric generation capacity: 100 MW;
Water depth: 1,600 m;
