Petrobras informs that it began producing oil and natural gas from FPSO Carioca, the first platform in Sépia field, in the Santos Basin pre-salt.

The platform, a FPSO type (floating production storage and offloading unit of oil and gas), is located approximately 200 km off the coast of the state of Rio de Janeiro, in water depths of 2,200 meters. The FPSO Carioca, unit chartered from Modec, has the capacity to process up to 180,000 barrels of oil per day and to compress up to 6 million cubic meters of natural gas.

The project foresees the interconnection of seven producing wells and four injection wells to the FPSO. The oil production will be flown out by offloading vessels, while the gas production will be drained through the pre-salt gas pipeline routes. The project also has a system to remove CO2 from the gas produced and to reinject it into the reservoir, reducing the release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and improving its oil recovery.

The Sépia shared reservoir is composed by Sépia and Sépia Leste fields, located in the Transfer of Rights and Concession (BM-S-24) areas, respectively, operated by Petrobras (97.6%), in partnership with Petrogal Brasil S.A. (2.4%).
