With production of 175 thousand barrels of oil per day (bpd), FPSO Carioca is approaching its full production capacity

(TN) Petrobras informs that the fourth producing well connected to the FPSO Carioca has come into operation, in the Sépia field, in the pre-salt layer of the Santos Basin. The opening of the last producing well added 41 thousand barrels of oil per day (bpd) to the unit – which already produced 134 thousand bpd. As a result, it became Petrobras’ largest production platform with 175,000 bpd.

The FPSO Carioca, a unit chartered by Modec, started operations in August 2021 and has the capacity to process up to 180,000 bpd daily and compress up to 6 million m³/day of natural gas.

On the same date as the opening of the last producing well of the FPSO Carioca, Petrobras and the new partners of the shared deposit of Sépia signed the Production Sharing contracts, together with Pré-Sal Petróleo SA (PPSA), the contract manager, as well as the Partnership Agreement. The shared deposit is made up of the Sépia fields (governed by the Transfer of Rights and Production Sharing contracts) and Sépia Leste – governed by the Concession contract (BM-S-24). Thus, Petrobras, the operator, now holds a 55.3% interest in the deposit; TotalEnergies EP, 16.91%; Petronas, 12.69%; QP Brazil, 12.69%; and Petrogal Brasil S.A., 2.41%.
