Petrobras starts production tests at P-52 platform

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Nov. 26 -- Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) on Nov. 23 began production tests at Platform P-52 in Roncador oil field in the Campos basin 125 km off Brazil.

P-52 is a semisubmersible production unit with a capacity to process 180,000 b/d of oil, to compress 9.3 million cu m/day of gas, and to inject about 300,000 b/d of water into the reservoir (OGJ Online, Nov. 7, 2006). It is installed in 1,800 m of water, a Brazil record.

The platform initially will handle volumes of about 20,000 b/d but is expected to reach its total capacity of 180,000 b/d in mid-2008 when it will be interconnected to 18 production and 11 water injector wells.

The platform's hull was built in Singapore, and its operating modules were manufactured in Brazil.
