Offshore staff

RIO de JANEIRO – Petrobras has started the extended well test (EWT) in the northeastern part of Lula field, in the Santos Basin pre-salt reserves, about 300 km (186 mi) off the coast of Rio de Janeiro.

The EWT is under way on the BW Cidade de São Vicente FPSO, anchored at a depth of 2,120 m (6,955 ft). Estimated output is about 14,000 b/d.

The information gathered during the Lula Nordeste EWT will help in project development for the finalized production system to be set up in the Lula field under the name Lula Nordeste Pilot, and run on the Cidade de Paraty FPSO.

The Lula Nordeste EWT project is owned by a consortium formed by Petrobras (operator, with 65% interest), BG Group (25%) and Galp Energia (10%).
