Ibama issued this Wednesday the pre-license 601/2019 for the 3rd Stage of development of production in the pre-salt of the Santos Basin, for Petrobras. The next cycle of investments in the region is scheduled to install 11 FPSOs for definitive production systems, two production pilots and another 10 long duration (TLD) or advance production systems (SPA) – TLDs / SPAs are all in a stage of evaluation, ranging from 6 months to 1 year, without definitive unit installation.
These are projects of Petrobras’ next investment cycle, not yet present in the horizon of the 2019-2023 business plan. The updated schedule of projects is not in the documentation available in the licensing process.
In a note, Ibama said that this third stage of development represents an increase in production capacity of 500,000 barrels per day of oil and 16 million cubic meters per day of natural gas.
