The Brazilian oil company, Enauta, has launched a bidding process for the FPSO for the full development of the Atlanta field, in the Santos Basin, off the coast of Brazil.
The Atlanta field is already producing oil through the Petrojarl I FPSO – the initial production system.
Enauta hopes that the tender process for the full field development FPSo will be completed in 10 to 12 months, with companies that have proven experience in developing similar projects being invited to take part.
The tender considers an FPSO with a capacity to process 50 thousand barrels of oil per day, in which 6 to 8 production wells will be connected, including 3 wells that are already operating in the Early Production System (EPS).
According to Enauta, the tender process considers the adaptation of an existing FPSO, which has never been implemented, made possible by an exclusive agreement for 12 months with a purchase option signed by Enauta. The winning bidder will have the right to exercise this option, said Enauta.
Carlos Mastrangelo, Production & Development Officer, commented: “We started the bidding process with great confidence in the resilience of our project. EPS provides us with relevant information to reduce uncertainty when implementing FDS, which will be developed using only well-known technology. ”
Enauta, who will soon own 100 percent of the shares in the Atalanta field, will follow Barra’s decision to get out of the field, last month resumed production from the Atlanta oil field.
Enauta, formerly known as Quireoz Galvao, announced in November 2020 a “preventive suspension” of production in the Atlanta field, after it was found that corrosion in some equipment could impair functionality.
The company then decided to replace the tube in one of the 7-ATL-4HB- RJS well heaters in the field.
