Brazilian oil and gas company Enauta has informed that production has resumed from the Manati field, offshore Brazil, after a recent output halt caused by a valve issue.
Enauta said that Petrobras, the operator, had informed it that the production resumed on Sunday, after completion of the repair of the valve in the submerged export gas pipeline.

"The transaction is subject to a series of conditions precedent and the actions required for the conclusion of the agreement shall be completed by December 31st, 2021. If the transaction is completed, the interruption will have no impact on Enauta’s cash flow," Enauta said.
