Petrobras, a Brazilian international energy company, announces that the production unit “FPSO Marlim Sul” (Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading type unit) started production in the Marlim Sul field in the Campos Basin, offshore Rio de Janeiro state, in a water depth of 1,160 m, around 110 kilometers from the coast. The unit has the capacity to process 100 thousand barrels of oil a day, store 1.6 million barrels of oil, compress 2.3 million cubic meters of gas per day and inject 125 thousand barrels of water per day.

The FPSO-Marlim Sul was chartered by Petrobras from the company SBM Inc. in January 2003, through a contract with an initial term of 7 years and 10 months.

This event represents the beginning of production by the Complementary System of Module 1 of the Marlim Sul Field, comprising 5 oil producer wells, 4 water injection wells and underwater pipelines that collect production and transport gas, besides the platform itself. The system should reach peak production before the end of the second half of this year.

This project is beginning operation with all the safety and environmental systems fully operational. The purpose of these systems is to ensure adequate safety standards for people and installations and to protect the environment, according to the requirements of the environmental agencies and the Safety, Environmental and Occupational Health Policy adopted by Petrobras.
