The general manager of the Campos Basin Operations Unit (UO-BC), Marco Guerra, during the closing meeting of the activities of the Petro-Campos Basin Network, which took place on Tuesday morning (04), at the Sesi de Macaé, presented data from the Petrobras Business and Management Plan (2018-2022).
By raising the investment outlook from US $ 10 billion to US $ 18.9 billion for the next four years, Petrobras signals that the Campos and Macaé Basin will once again be the epicenter of operations that will redefine the volume of oil production and gas currently registered in Brazil.
In addition to continuing the development of exploration projects, in areas acquired in the concession round carried out by the National Petroleum Agency (ANP) at the beginning of the year, the state company also indicates that it will apply resources to raise the production factor in mature reserves in 91 projects in progress dedicated exclusively to the Campos Basin.
Through this new strategy, the company intends to put into operation six new production systems in the region, which represents a new offer of contracting services and acquisition of materials within the offshore production chain based in Macaé, resulting ion the creation of thousands of job opportunities.
The Business Plan, released by Petrobras, also included areas already discovered in the pre-salt layer of the Campos Basin, a potential that tends to be explored through partnerships with other major oil and gas operators around the world.
Faced with this new virtuous cycle, expectations for Macaé are the best possible. “We still have a lot to do and produce in the Campos Basin, which is responsible for about 50% of the national production. Currently, 53 platforms are in operation in the Campos Basin, 49 in the state of Rio, “said Marco Guerra.
The general manager of UO-BC reported that 17 platforms are in the process of decommissioning in the coming years.
