Platform P-76 enters into operation in Rio de Janeiro

Located in the pre-salt area, the maritime area where the largest oil reserves in the country are, P-76, from Petrobras, started its operations in the region of Búzios, the coast of Rio de Janeiro.  The FPSO (floating unit of production, storage and transfer of oil and gas) will have the capacity to process up to 150,000 barrels of oil per day and compress up to 6 million cubic meters of natural gas per day.

The state-owned project will also connect FPSO to ten producing wells and seven injector wells, thus elevating oil production in the country. In 2018, Brazil reached the mark of 1.5 million barrels of oil produced in the pre-salt per day. In addition, the entry into operation of another Petrobras platform in Buzios, P-77, is also planned for this year.
