FPSO maintenance slows Petrobras’ production

Offshore staff

RIO DE JANEIRO Petrobras’ oil production in Brazil averaged 2.19 MMb/d last month, a 2% drop compared to September.

This was mainly due to stoppages for maintenance on the FPSOs Cidade Anchieta and Capixaba, both serving the Parque das Baleias development, and the FPSO Cidade Angra dos Reis at the Lula field in the Santos basin.

The company’s presalt oil and natural gas production (operated by Petrobras and partners’ share) was also down at 1.42 MMboe/d.

However, the company and its partners set a new daily presalt oil production record of 1.23 MMbbl on Oct. 11.
