FPSO Cidade de Itaguai arrives in Lula field
The floating production, storage and offloading unit (FPSO) Cidade de Itaguaí is now anchored in the Iracema Norte area of Lula field, in the Pre-Salt layer of Santos Basin, off the coast of Rio de Janeiro. The platform-ship is able to produce 150,000 barrels of oil and compress 8 million cubic meters of natural gas per day. Oil production in the field is scheduled to begin in the third quarter of this year.

Moored 240 km off the coast of Rio at a water depth of around 2,240 meters, FPSO Cidade de Itaguaí will be connected to eight production wells and nine injection wells. The natural gas will be exported to shore via a subsea gas pipeline. The unit is also capable of storing 1.6 million barrels of oil and injecting 264,000 barrels of water per day.

Overall, 65% of Cidade de Itaguaí was produced domestically, and 12 of its modules were built in Brazil: 10 at the EBE shipyard in Itaguaí, Rio de Janeiro; and two at the Schahin shipyard in São Sebastião, São Paulo. The modules were integrated at the BrasFELS shipyard in Angra dos Reis, Rio de Janeiro.

The platform-ship was acquired from the Schahin/Modec consortium, which was responsible for converting the hull, constructing and integrating the modules, and operating the unit.

The Iracema Norte area of Lula field is located in exploration block BM-S-11, in the pre-salt layer of Santos Basin. BM-S-11 is being developed through a consortium featuring Petrobras (leader and operator, with a 65% stake), BG E&P Brasil Ltda (25%) and Petrogal Brasil SA (10%).

FPSO Cidade de Itaguaí – key figures:

- Oil processing: 150,000 barrels per day
- Gas treatment and compression: 8 million m³ per day
- Water treatment and injection: 264,000 barrels per day
- Oil storage capacity: 1.6 million barrels
- Water depth: 2,240 meters
- Total length: 332 meters
- Breadth: 58 meters
- Height: 31 meters
- Weight: 82,000 metric tons

About Petrobras

We have upwards of 100 production platforms, 16 refineries, 30,000 kilometers of pipelines and more than 6,000 service stations. Our proved reserves are around 14 billion barrels of oil, a figure expected to double in the next few years. With the discovery of oil and gas in the pre-salt region, Brazil may become the world's fourth biggest oil producer in 2030.

We have built a track record of overcoming challenges since 1953, when the company was created. The main one was developing technology to explore and produce oil in deep and ultra-deep waters, where upwards of 90% of our reserves are nestled. With innovation and daringness, we are now the Brazilian company that makes the applies for the most patents in Brazil and abroad.
