Petrobras has again postponed the tender submission deadline for chartering the Búzios V FPSO, a production unit scheduled to start operating in 2021. With the change in schedule, the new deadline was rescheduled for April 30.
The postponement marks the seventh change in the bidding date. The last deadline had been set for this April 13.
The change of date was made official this week. The postponement, according to Petrobras, was requested by some of the companies that participate in the process.
The Búzios V FPSO plant will have the capacity to produce 180,000 barrels / day of oil and process 12 million m3 / day of gas. The charter agreement will be for 21 years, with the possibility of extension for an equal period.
The first production unit in Búzios, the P-74, will be in operation until the end of April. Two more FPSOs are scheduled for this year, the P-75 and the P-76. The fourth unit, P-77, has first oil planned for 2020.
