Chevron Corporation's Brazilian subsidiary and Petrobras have started crude oil production from Papa-Terra’s floating production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO) offshore Brazil.

Chevron holds a 37.5% interest in the Papa-Terra field, with Petrobras, the project operator, has the remaining 62.5%.

Papa-Terra is about 110km southeast of Rio de Janeiro in about 3900ft water depth (1,190m), and is a heavy oil development within Block BC-20 of the southern Campos basin.

Discovered in 2003, the Papa-Terra field development features an FPSO and the first tension leg wellhead platform in Brazil, which is expected to start production in 2014.

Papa-Terra has installed capacity to produce 140,000 bbl/d.
