(PN) After a wait of more than four months, Enauta was finally able to restart production at its main asset, the Atlanta field, in the Santos Basin. The resumption of operations in the area took place on the 5th of November. The field’s production was halted in July, due to technical problems in the electrical connectors for pumps on the Atlanta platform.
Production was restarted after the reinstallation of the subsea pumping module in well #5. The well’s production should be maintained at around 12 thousand barrels per day (bbl/d) for a long period, below its peak capacity of more than 15 thousand bbl/d due to limitations of the Pilot Platform (FPSO Petrojarl I). Production from the other two wells is expected over the next 30 and 60 days respectively.
In October, the FPSO Atlanta (Definitive Platform) completed its second dry docking and painting, reaching a level of 85% in Phase 1 development. Several final items were also contracted that month to support the start of production, including support vessels for anchoring the platform at the location. As provided for in the environmental license, the platform will proceed from commissioning in the United Arab Emirates directly to the location in Atlanta. First oil from FPSO Atlanta is scheduled for August 2024, in line with schedule.
