(TN) The FPSO Anna Nery left the BrasFELS shipyard, in the city of Angra dos Reis (RJ), and headed for its final destination, the Marlim field, in the Campos Basin. The vessel has the capacity to produce up to 70,000 barrels of oil per day and process up to 4 million m³ of gas per day. The plant should start operating in the first quarter of next year. The ship was named in honor of a great character in Brazilian history – Anna Nery, a pioneer of nursing in Brazil, was responsible for providing volunteer services in the Paraguayan War (1864-1870) in military hospitals.
FPSO Anna Nery is part of the Campos Basin Renewal Plan, whose objective is to renew mature assets operated by the company in the region. Petrobras is investing US$ 16 billion in this program, which is part of its Strategic Plan for the period from 2022 to 2026. “An international hub of offshore technology and cradle of deepwater production in Brazil, the Campos Basin was a pioneer in innovation and will continue to being both for decommissioning projects and for the revitalization of mature concessions”, the state company said in a statement.
The vessel will be anchored in a water depth of 927 meters and interconnected to 32 wells, with peak production scheduled for 2025. The Marlim Revitalization Project plans to replace the nine platforms currently operating in the Marlim and Voador fields (P-18 , P-19, P-20, P-26, P-32, P-33, P-35, P-37 and P-47) by the new FPSOs Anna Nery and Anita Garibaldi – the latter being scheduled to start production as well in 2023.
