Fossil Energy – FPSO
Petrobras announced the bidding process that will contract a new FPSO for the Albacora field.
The unit will be chartered for 27 years and will have the capacity to produce 120,000 barrels per day and process 6 million cubic meters of gas per day.
Petrobras’ idea is to replace the two units currently in operation in Albacora (P-25 and P-31) with the new platform, which will operate in a water depth of 670 meters. According to the notice, the new FPSO will be connected to 29 wells, 18 of which are producers and another 11 for water injection. The initial forecast is that the opening of bids will take place on February 13, 2023.
