(PetroNoticias) Enauta started the week with good reasons to celebrate. Its main asset, the Atlanta field, reached today the mark of 18 million barrels produced since the beginning of its operation, in May 2018. Located in the Santos Basin, the field today operates through an Early Production System (EPS), the FPSO Petrojarl I, in a water depth of 1,550 meters. Atlanta is currently producing through two wells. In August, production is expected to resume from the third well in the SPA.
In a statement to the market to celebrate the most recent achievement, Enauta highlighted that a combination of different technologies was required to enable the elevation of heavy oil from the field, with low sulfur content, to the FPSO. “This oil meets the recommendations of the IMO 2020 – international regulation that determines the reduction of sulfur dioxide emissions – and has excellent acceptance in the international market. Due to these advantages, the production from the Atlanta Field has been sold at refineries at a premium in relation to the Brent price”, said the company.
Enauta is currently in the process of contracting the field’s definitive FPSO. The unit will have the capacity to produce 50,000 barrels per day and will be connected to six producing wells (up to eight). Three of them are already part of the EPS. The estimate is that the process will be completed within ten to 12 months, being completed in mid-2022.
