Petrobras brings third well online at Sapinhoá offshore Brazil
Petrobras has started up 7-SPH-04-SPS, the third production well of the Sapinhoá Pilot Project in the Santos basin presalt region.
The well, which has an estimated production potential of 26,000 b/d, is connected to the FPSOCidade de São Paulo through a buoyancy supported risers (BSR) system.
It is the second well connected via the BSR gathering system following the start-up ofwell SPS-77A in February.
FPSOCidade de São Paulo, which started operating in January 2013, has the capacity to process up to 120,000 b/d of oil.
A fourth production well will be brought onstream early in the second half of this year, at which point the platform will reach its full output capacity.
