Petrobras reports that platform P-20, deployed in Marlim field, Campos Basin, restarted production on Monday, April 7, at 10:30 am. The platform was temporarily shut down due to damage caused by a fire in its chemicals system on December 26 of last year. With authorization from the competent agencies, Petrobras has taken all necessary steps to normalize operations on the P-20, in line with the most rigorous health, safety and environmental standards.
Specialized teams from various disciplines worked hard and tirelessly for around 100 days to complete the repair work. Overall, 79 professionals onshore (25 working exclusively on the operation) as well as 220 onboard were involved.
P-20 has a potential output capacity of 20,000 barrels of oil per day and is one of the platforms in the Campos Basin’s Marlim Field production system.
