MERO 1 WILL HAVE NEW INJECTION TECHNIQUE

 

Petrobras will implement a new well concept in the field of Mero 1 that promises to generate an economy of US $ 280 million in the implementation costs (Capex) of the Santos Basin pre-salt project.

Called the Wag Loop, the technique allows the injection of water and gas to be made by the same duct alternately, generating a kind of circuit – like a looping – between the wells and the platform.

With this, the injection of fluids in each of the field wells can occur both independently and simultaneously. In the standard method (Wag – Water Alternating Gas), the substances were injected by separate conduits to pressurize the reservoir.
