Shell's FPSO begins deep water production in Brazil Santos Basin

Royal Dutch Shell plc, through its subsidiary BG E&P Brasil Ltda. (Shell) and consortium partners in Lula South, announce today that deep-water production has started at the FPSO P-66, which is located in the Brazilian pre-salt of the Santos Basin. 

Positioned in 2,150-metre water depth, the P-66 can process up to 150,000-barrels of oil and 6-million cubic meters of natural gas per day.  The unit is the first in a series of standardized vessels operated by Petrobras to begin production within the BM-S-11 block consortium and the seventh to produce within the consortium overall.

“Achieving production at Lula South is an important accomplishment in the Santos Basin, and we recognize Petrobras' delivery of this critical milestone,” said Andy Brown, Upstream Director for Shell.  “The consortium has additional FPSOs in this series planned over the next three-years.  Across Shell's deep water business in Brazil, we're investing in projects with competitive break-even prices, and our presence as Brazil's second largest oil producer continues to grow.”

Shell has a 25-percent stake in the consortium developing the Lula field in the BM-S-11 block. Petrobras operates the field with a 65-percent interest, and Galp, through its subsidiary Petrogal Brasil, holds the remaining 10-percent interest. The P-66 is the tenth deep-water FPSO in operation across Shell's working interest in the pre-salt areas of Santos Basin.  Shell operates two additional FPSOs offshore Brazil.

Shell's deep water business also extends to the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, Nigeria, and Malaysia and, globally, produces approximately 725-thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d); production is expected to reach approximately 900-thousand boe/d by the early 2020s, from already discovered, established areas.
