Petrobras kicks-off production offshore Espirito Santo

Jun 15, 2009 02:00 AM

Petrobras announces that it kicked-off production at the Cangoa and Camarupim gas fields on June 10th, off the northern coast of the State of Espirito Santo. The projects are part of the Gas Production Anticipation Plan (Plangas), which was launched in 2006 aiming to leverage the domestic production of natural gas.
The production from the two new fields will be offloaded to the Cacimbas Gas Treatment Unity (UTGC), in Linhares.

The Camarupim Field, a partnership between Petrobras (75 %) and El Paso (25 %), went into production less than 3 years after it was discovered (July 2006), via well 7-CMR-1H-ESS. The gas will be used to the commissioning of the FPSO Cidade de Sao Mateus, the first FPSO for gas installed in Brazil.
Anchored at a water depth of 790 meters, the vessel will receive production from three other wells, which have already been drilled and complete the field's development, with a daily production potential of 6 mm cm of natural gas and 8,000 barrels of condensate per day. FPSO Cidade de Sao Mateus is capable of processing 10 mm cm of gas and 35,000 barrels of oil per day.

Meanwhile, the Cangoa Field, discovered in May 1988, started producing by means of well 7-CAN-1D-ESS, which is connected to the Peroa platform (PPER-1), and will produce directly to the gas pipeline that offloads the Peroa gas to the UTGC.
Located at a water depth of 60 meters and 42 km away from the mouth of the Doce River, the field is capable of producing nearly 400,000 cm of natural gas per day.
