Petrobras announced today production has commenced at their P-61 platform in the Papa-Terra field located at the southern end of the Campos Basin.
The P-61 is the first tensioned leg wellhead platform (TLWP) to be installed in South America and is anchored to the seafloor 110 kilometers offshore in water depths of around 1,200 meters.
The P-61 TLWP and the adjacent P-63 FPSO complete a complex system that is designed to produce hydrocarbons from the Papa-Terra field. Chevron, a 37.5% partner on the field notes heavier-oil production wells will lead to P-61 while lighter-oil production wells will tie back to the P-63 FPSO.
Petrobras notes the P-61 topsides facility was built at Keppel FELS shipyard and the hull and final assembly was completed at the BrasFELS shipyard in Angra dos Reis, Rio de Janeiro.
