press release
Wednesday, February 01, 2012

On January 31th 2012, at 18h39m50s, the FPSO OSX-1 successfully initiated the production of first oil for its anchor client OGX, the Brazilian EBX Group oil and gas company responsible for the largest private-sector exploratory campaign in Brazil.

 

The FPSO OSX-1 is in charge of carrying out the Extended Well Test on the Waimea accumulation, in the Campos Basin, through well OGX-26HP, located 80km off the coast, at a water depth of 130 meters.

 

The FPSO OSX-1 is the first floating, production, storage and offloading unit to integrate the OSX fleet. OSX-1 was built in Korea and customized in Singapore, at Keppel’s shipyard. It is 271,75 meters long, and has the capacity to store up to 900 thousand barrels of oil. The FPSO OSX-1 has been leased to OGX for a period of 20 years, and is operated by OSX through its subsidiary OSX Serviços Operacionais Ltda.

 

During the coming weeks, OGX’s production team will test different flow rate levels, aiming at gradually reaching a stable production level of roughly 15 thousand barrels per day.
