Petrobras holds a 23.33% interest in the Hadrian South field. ExxonMobil, the operator, has 46.67% and Eni 30%.
The Hadrian South development consists of two subsea natural gas wells and a 12-kilometer subsea tieback to the Lucius field FPSO. The Lucius platform can accommodate output from Hadrian South of 8.5 million cubic feet of natural gas per day (50 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day).
Hadrian South represents a further production asset for Petrobras, already a major player in ultra-deep water operations. It is the fifth ultra-deep water field to come on stream in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico after Lucius, which began producing at the beginning of January of this year.
