The Brazilian Institute of the Environment (Ibama) issued the operating license for the FPSO Anna Nery, which will be installed in the Marlim field, in the Campos Basin. The document is valid for eight years. 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 FPSO should start operating later this month.
The FPSO Anna Nery will be the first of two units that will form part of the Marlim and Voador Revitalization Project. The unit will be anchored in a water depth of 927 meters and connected to 32 wells, with peak production expected for 2025.
Chartered to Petrobras by the company Yinson, the platform vessel 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.
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). The second unit planned within the revitalization program, the FPSO Anita Garibaldi, will have its first oil in 2023.
