The National Petroleum Agency (ANP) approved earlier this week the Development Plan for the Lapa field, in the pre-salt of the Santos basin. The field is operated by Total (45%), in partnership with Shell (30%) and Repsol Sinopec (25%). The French oil company’s share previously belonged to Petrobrás, which sold its share in the area.
The ANP determined the presentation of the revision of the PD contemplating the development of the Southwest area of the field until December 31 of this year. The agency also guided the maintenance of the sending of the Reservoir Report, every six months until the end of the year 2021.
The agency also asked for investment actions to guarantee maintenance and improve the operational efficiency of the field facilities during the contract period.
Finally, Total and its partners must carry out periodic studies on the obsolescence of critical equipment and the automation system; the analysis of adequacy to the security philosophy; and the integrity of the FPSO Cidade de Caraguatatuba, which produces in the field.
