FPSO begins well test offshore Brazil

By OGJ editors

The OSX-1 floating production, storage, and offloading vessel has begun production in an extended well test by OGX Petroleo e Gas Participacoes SA in the Waimea area of the Campos basin offshore Brazil (OGJ Online, June 21, 2011).

OGX will test different rates of oil flow from well OGX-26HP, 80 km offshore in 130 m of water. The target rate is 15,000 b/d.

OGX has a 20 year lease for the FPSO from the OSX Group. The vessel, built in South Korea and customized at Keppel Shipyard in Singapore, is 272 m long with storage capacity of 900,000 bbl of oil.

The OSX-1 is one of three FPSOs OGX plans to use to develop the Waimea complex on Block BM-C-41 in conjunction with two wellhead platforms.
