The FPSO P-66 left the Brasfels Shipyard, in Angra dos Reis (RJ). The P-66, which will be based in the Lula field, Lula Sul module in the pre-salt  Santos Basin, is expected to reach the field in the next few days.

The beginning of the operation of the production system unit will take place after the anchoring and interconnection works with the first producing well.

The P-66 will have the function of separating the oil from the gas and water during the production process, storing it in the cargo tanks and finally transferring it to oil tankers, which are responsible for transporting it. The unit will produce through ten production wells and eight injection wells and will have the capacity to process 150,000 barrels of oil per day (bpd) and 6 million cubic meters of natural gas per day.

The Lula field is located in the BM-S-11 concession, operated by Petrobras (65%), in partnership with BG E & P Brasil – a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell plc (25%) – and Petrogal Brasil (10% ).
