Enauta is licensing with Ibama the installation of an FPSO with the capacity to produce 50,000 barrels per day of oil in the Atlanta field in the deep waters of the Santos Basin. The company estimates that the production unit will begin production in 2022.
The Atlanta field currently produces from an Early Production System (SPA) with the FPSO Petrojarl 1, contracted with Teekay Offshore. The current system anticipated will have in total three producing wells, which will then be transferred to the definitive system, which will have a total of 12 wells. The drilling of the new wells will be done in two phases, four wells in 2021 and another five in 2024.
The definitive Atlanta system will have two undersea service manifolds, three service lines for preservation with diesel, and six umbilicals with power cable.
The Atlanta field is the subject of a corporate dispute. Last month, Enauta received approval from the ANP for compulsory assignment of Dommo’s (formerly OGX) participation in the Atlanta field (BS-4). The decision was taken by the agency’s board. The information was confirmed in a statement to the market.
The decision is one of the steps to formalize the shares of Dommo Energia for Enauta and Barra Energia, which will formally each hold 50% in the BS-4 contract, where the Atlanta field is located, in the post-salt Santos Basin. For the purposes of production appropriation and reserves, the companies already considered the exit of Dommo, based on arbitration decisions of 2018, retroactive to October 2017.
