Italian oil company Eni has started oil production via the Miamte FPSO at the Miztón field, offshore Mexico
The field sits in Area 1 in the Gulf of Mexico, about 10 kilometers offshore the Tabasco coast.
Upon its arrival in Mexico in January 2022, Miamte FPSO has been connected to its Mooring System and went through pre-commissioning and integrated commissioning activities.
Following the first hydrocarbon introduction into the FPSO and two more platforms start-up in Amoca and Tecoalli fields, production will ramp up till the full field development will be completed by 2024, Eni said.
The FPSO, supplied by MODEC, has an oil treatment capacity of 90 kbopd and gas treatment capacity of 75MMscfd.
