RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil – Petrobras has submitted declarations of commerciality to Brazil’s National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP) for seven deepwater oilfields off the Sergipe coast.
The fields are spread among four concessions: BM-SEAL-4 and BM-SEAL-11, and BM-SEAL-4A and BM-SEAL-10, acquired under Brazil’s 2nd and 6th bid rounds in 2000 and 2004.
In the declarations sent to the regulator, the company suggested the following new names for the accumulations: Budião, Budião Noroeste, Budião Sudeste, Palombeta, Cavala, Agulhinha, and Agulhinha Oeste.
Petrobras plans production from two FPSOs via the Sergipe Deepwater (SEAP) I and II developments.
The P-81 platform, serving the SEAP I module, is due to start production in 2026, with capacity to produce 120,000 b/d of oil/condensate and 8 MMcm/d of gas.
Currently the second proposed platform, for SEAP II, is in the contracting planning phase and will likely start production after the completion of the company’s 2022-2026 Strategic Plan horizon.
Petrobras will commission a new gas flow system that will connect the two production modules to the Sergipan coast, with a capacity of 18 MMcm/d.
The company has a 100% operated interest in BM-SEAL-4A and BM-SEAL-10; a 60% operated stake in BM-SEAL-11, in partnership with IBV Brasil Petróleo; and a 75% controlling interest in BM-SEAL-4, where ONGC Campos is the sole partner.
