First oil production from the giant Libra oil field offshore Brazil is expected to be achieved on November 15, 2017.
According to Brazil’s O’Globo news paper, the new date has been shared by the Petrobras Libra Project Manager, Orlando Ribeiro.
O’Globo reports that the new date marks a four month delay compared to the last schedule, and a year delay compared to the original plan for the first Libra extended well test.
First oil will flow into the Pioneiro de Libra FPSO, chartered by Petrobras from Teekay and Odeberecht consortium. The vessel, built in Singapore, arrived in Brazil in May this year.
