Cidade de Paraty in production
FPSO Cidade de Paraty went on stream, beginning production from the Lula Nordeste field in the Santos Basin presalt play. It is about 300km off Brazil, in the northeast corner of Block BM-S-11.
The FPSO can process up to 120,000bo/d and 5MMcm/d of gas. Petrobras, operator, said the first well (7-LL-11-RJS) to be connected to the platform has the potential to produce 25,000b/d, but it will be restricted to 13,000b/d during the first month as processing and reinjection systems are commissioned. Petrobras will connect another seven production wells and six injection wells. Peak production, 120,000 b/d, is expected for 2H 2014.
