Petrobras begins production of ultradeep Búzios
21 April 2018
Petrobras has started production of the Búzios field, in the pre-salt of the Santos Basin, by means of platform P-74. P-74 is located about 200 km (124 miles) off the coast of the state of Rio de Janeiro, at a water depth of 2,000 meters and is the thirteenth platform to go into operation in the Brazilian pre-salt.
Due to the high production potential of Búzios, in addition to P-74, four more platforms will be allocated to this field between 2018 and 2021, each with a capacity to process up to 150,000 barrels of oil and 6 million cubic meters of gas daily.
Búzios is one of the main pre-salt projects of the company and will contribute to the increase of Petrobras’ production under the 2018-2022 Business and Management Plan.
