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.
