Petrobras announces the departure of the platform P-68 for operation in Berbigao and Sururu fields
Petrobras reports that the P-68 platform left today the Jurong Aracruz Shipyard, heading to the Berbigão and Sururu fields, in the Santos Basin pre-salt. Production of these fields is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2019.

In line with its 2019-2023 Business and Management Plan, P-68 will be the fourth platform to start-up in 2019, after P-67, P-76 and P-77, contributing to the projected growth of Petrobras production during this period.

This is a FPSO platform (floating, production, storage and offloading unit of oil and gas) and has the following characteristics:

- Oil Processing Capacity: 150 thousand barrels/day;
- Gas Processing Capacity: 6 million m³/day;
- Injection Water Treatment Capacity: 180 thousand barrels/day;
- Storage Capacity: 1.6 million barrels of oil;
- Depth Anchorage: 2,280 m;
- Total Length: 316 m;
- Width: 54 m;
- Height: 31.5 m.

The hull was built at the Rio Grande Shipyard, in Rio Grande do Sul, and the module integration and commissioning of the Unit were carried out at the Jurong Aracruz Shipyard, in Aracruz, Espírito Santo.

Berbigão and Sururu fields are located in the BM-S-11A concession, operated by Petrobras (42.5%), in partnership with Shell Brasil Petróleo Ltda. (25%), Total (22.5%) and Petrogal Brasil S.A. (10%), with the consortium companies owning P-68. The reservoirs of these fields extend to areas under the Transfer of Rights Agreement (100% Petrobras) and, after the unitization process, will constitute the shared reservoir of Berbigão and Sururu.

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.
