On Monday, 26, Enauta reached the mark of 18 million barrels produced in the Atlanta field, in the Santos basin, since the beginning of its production, in 2018, informed the oil company. The volume corresponds to less than 2% of the total existing barrels in the field, he pointed out.
After three years, Enauta is working to stabilize the production of the Early Production System (SPA) in Atlanta, which has three producing wells. Today, the field produces through two wells. In August, production of the third structure is expected to resume.
“With a water depth of 1,550 meters (ultra-deep water), the combination of different technologies in an innovative arrangement was required to enable the lifting of heavy oil, with low sulfur content, to the FPSO (platform)”, said the Enauta in a note.
According to the company, the oil meets the recommendations of the IMO 2020 – international regulation that determines the reduction of sulfur dioxide emissions – and has excellent acceptance in the international market.
“Due to these advantages, the production from the Atlanta field has been sold at refineries with a premium in relation to the Brent price”, highlighted the company.
In March of this year, the FPSO bidding process for the Definitive System was started, considering an FPSO with the capacity to process 50,000 barrels per day, to which six to eight producing wells will be connected, three of which are already in operation in the Early Production.
It is estimated that the completion of the process will take ten to 12 months from this date, in the first quarter of 2022.
Enauta also informed that it reduced, between 2018 and 2020, by 28% the emissions of CO2/barrel produced in the Atlanta field.
