(Petrobras, 19.Jun.2024) — Petrobras said the FPSO Maria Quitéria is currently en route to Brazil. The platform ship departed from China in May and is expected to arrive at its location in the third quarter of this year.

The unit is scheduled to begin operations in the last quarter of 2024, thus advancing the timeline from PE 24-28, initially planned to commence operations in 2025.

The FPSO will operate in the Jubarte field, located in the Campos Basin’s pre-salt layer, off Espírito Santo’s coast. The unit has a production capacity of 100,000 barrels of oil and can process 5 million cubic meters of gas. The production projections of the Strategic Plan, which allow for a margin of variation, remain unchanged.

The FPSO Maria Quitéria is a floating production, storage, and offloading unit equipped with decarbonization technologies such as a combined cycle power generation system and FGRU (closed flare).

Petrobras chartered the unit from Yinson, which was also responsible for its construction.
