Petrobras to start up Campos Basin terminal

Oct 03, 2008 02:00 AM

Petrobras says its new $ 837 mm tanker loading terminal in the Campos Basin will begin oil exports this month. The terminal is the first step in the state-owned oil major's plan to export large volumes of oil from the Roncador and Marlim fields over the next decades, reports said.
The PRA-1 autonomous repumping platform is designed to receive crude oil from four deepwater floating production systems that will be installed on the Roncador, Marlim Leste and Marlim Sul deepwater fields, reported Lloyd's List. It is slated to take oil from the P-51 platform on the Marlim Sul field, from the P-53 floating production storage and offloading vessel on Marlim Leste, and P-52 and P-55 production facilities on the Roncador field once they are installed.

The PRA-1 platform has been designed to offload the crude to tankers via the Modec-owned Cidade de Macae floating storage and offloading vessel (VLCC convert), starting with oil that is coming from the P-52.
Oil is also scheduled to be loaded onto tankers from two floating terminals, near the PRA-1 platform, from next year.

This facility is designed to transfer up to 810,000 barrels of oil per day when all four of the deepwater production units are pumping at peak rates.
The platform will reduce the costs of transferring oil from the Campos Basin fields and improve the economics of Petrobras's development of the Marlim and Roncador fields, reports said.
