Petroleo Brasileiro S.A. – Petrobras reports that it started the production of oil and natural gas from the shared deposit of Atapu, through platform P-70, in the eastern portion of the Santos Basin pre-salt, near the Buzios field.

The Atapu shared deposit, which comprises the fields Oeste de Atapu, Atapu and a portion of the Union's noncontracted area, whose unitization process was completed in September 2019.

Petrobras holds 89.257% of the rights to the deposit in partnership with Shell Brasil Petróleo Ltda (4.258%), Total E&P do Brasil Ltda (3.832%), Petrogal Brasil S.A. (1.703%) and PPSA, representing the Union (0.950%).

Atapu will contribute to the growth of production in the pre-salt, which is becoming increasingly relevant for Petrobras.

The P-70 own platform, the fifth FPSO (floating, production, storage and offloading) of the series of replicants, has the capacity to process up to 150 thousand barrels of oil daily and treat up to 6 million m³ of natural gas. The unit will operate about 200 km off the coast of Rio de Janeiro state, in 2,300 m of water depth, with a forecast of interconnection of up to eight producing and eight injection wells.
