P-68 is launched towards the pre-salt of the Santos Basin

On Monday morning (16), the launch of the first oil platform built in Espirito Santo, the platform P-68, took place. The structure was manufactured at the Jurong Aracruz Shipyard (EJA), on the northern coast of the state and left towards the fields of Berbigão and Sururu, in the pre-salt of the Santos basin. It will be used in the production of oil and gas in the region, which is expected to begin in the 4th quarter of 2019.

The hull of the structure of P-68, which has capacity for production of up to 150,000 barrels of oil per day, was made in the shipyard Rio Grande (RS) and the integration of the modules plus the commissioning of the unit, were completed at the Jurong Aracruz shipyard.

"The fields of Berbigão and Sururu are located in the BM-S-11A concession, operated by Petrobras (42.5%), in partnership with Shell Brasil Petróleo LTDA. (25%), Total (22.5%) and Petrogal Brasil S.A. (10%), and the companies consorted the owners of P-68. The reservoirs of these fields extend to areas under the onerous assignment contract (100% Petrobras) and, after the process of unitization, will constitute the shared deposits of Berbigão and Sururu ", Petrobras said in a statement.

The launch of the platform to the Sea was scheduled for the last Friday (13) and was cancelled. Both Petrobras and EJA did not report the reason for the delay, only the Jurong Aracruz shipyard said that the cancellation was for "inevitable circumstances".
