Yinson has informed that Brazil’s Petrobras FPSO Anna Nery started production on May 07, 2023, in Campos Basin, within the project of revitalisation of the Marlim and Voador fields, which will produce the post-salt reservoirs and Brava, located in the pre-salt of the two fields. The unit is capable of producing daily up to 70,000 barrels of oil and processing 4 million m³ of gas.
“This is the largest project in the world in the recovery of mature assets in the offshore industry. Through it, we will
increase production, maintain jobs, and open an important learning and knowledge front for other similar projects
throughout Brazil,” said Jean Paul Prates, CEO of Petrobras.
The Anna Nery unit, of the FPSO (floating, production, storage, and offloading unit) type, together with the Anita Garibaldi,
also, an FPSO, makes up the first major revitalisation project for mature fields in the Campos Basin. The deployment of these two new production systems, appropriate to the mature field exploration format, provides operational continuity to the Marlim and Voador fields, increasing production to an average of 150,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed), maintaining jobs and support services, and opening an important learning and knowledge front for other revitalisation projects.
The FPSO is anchored in a water depth of 927 meters and interconnected to 32 wells, with peak production
scheduled for 2025. Petrobas said the Marlim and Voador revitalisation project will contribute to the recovery of the Campos Basin production, currently at about 560,000 boed. The projection for the basin’s production is 900,000 boed in 2027.
