(PN) The Chinese shipyard Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Offshore (DSIC) held the delivery ceremony for the FPSO Anita Garibaldi, which will be installed in the Marlim field, in the Campos Basin. The platform ship was delivered to Japan’s Modec, which will charter the unit to Petrobras for 25 years. The platform ship is expected to arrive in Brazil at the end of the year for commissioning activities. Production will begin in 2023.
As a reminder, the FPSO Anita Garibaldi will be the second unit within the Marlim and Voador Revitalization Project. The project’s first vessel, the FPSO Anna Nery, left China in July and is expected to arrive in Brazil in October. The FPSO Anita Garibaldi will have a capacity of up to 80 thousand barrels per day and 7 million m³ per day of natural gas. The FPSO Anna Nery will be capable of producing 70,000 barrels a day and 4 million m³ of gas a day.
The two units will be connected to 75 wells and will allow the extension of production from the fields in the field until 2048. The new systems will allow the expansion of the current production of Marlim and Voador to more than 150 thousand barrels of oil per day.
