The FPSO Cidade de Itaguaí platform vessel has recently been anchored in the Iracema North area of the Lula field, in the Santos Basin, off the coast of the State of Rio de Janeiro.

The unit has the capacity to produce 150 thousand barrels of oil per day and compression of 8 million cubic meters of natural gas per day. Production is expected to begin in the third quarter this year.

Anchored 240 km off the coast of Rio de Janeiro, at a depth of approximately 2 240 metres, the FPSO Cidade de Itaguaí will be connected to eight production wells and nine injection wells. The natural gas will be exported onshore through a sub-sea pipeline. Additionally, the unit has storage capacity of 1.6 million barrels of oil and injection capacity of 264 thousand barrels of water per day.

The Cidade de Itaguaí vessel had 12 modules built in Brazil, 10 at Empresa Brasileira de Engenharia’s site in Itaguaí and two at Schahin’s site in São Sebastião. The integration of these modules took place at the BrasFELS shipyard in Angra dos Reis.

The platform vessel was procured by the Schahin/Modec consortium, which had the responsibility for the conversion of the hull, construction and integration of the modules and operation of the unit.

The Iracema North area of the Lula field is located in block BM-S-11, in the Santos Basin. BG Group has a 25% interest in BM-S-11 with the other partners being Petrobras (65% and operator) and Petrogal Brasil SA (10%).
