The Marlim field revitalization project, in the Campos Basin, has recently achieved a new milestone. The Brazilian Institute of the Environment (Ibama) issued the installation licenses for the FPSOs Anna Nery and Anita Garibaldi. Both are expected to start producing in the field in 2023.
The two platforms will be connected to 77 wells, 14 of which are new and another 63 that will be relocated from platforms already installed in the field and which will be decommissioned. With the revitalization of Marlim, Petrobras hopes to extend production from the field’s deposits until 2048.
In addition, the new FPSOs are expected to increase Marlim and Voador production from the current level of 45,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day to around 153,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
The FPSO Anna Nery is being built by Yinson, while the FPSO Anita Garibaldi is being built by Modec. Marlim started producing in 1991 and is the field with the highest accumulated production of Petrobras, with around 3 billion barrels of oil equivalent extracted.
