Petrobras on P-82 construction contract

Rio de Janeiro, October 4, 2022 - Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. – Petrobras informs that today it signed a contract with Sembcorp Marine Rigs & Floaters for the construction of the P-82 platform, as a result of the advancement of the Búzios field development project, in the Santos Basin pre-salt area.

The P-82 will be of the FPSO type and will have the capacity to produce up to 225 thousand barrels of oil per day, process up to 12 million of gas per day, and store more than 1.6 million barrels. The project foresees the interconnection of 16 wells, 9 of which are producers and 7 injectors.

The platform is scheduled to start operating in 2026, and it will be the tenth platform to be installed in the Búzios field, where Petrobras is the operator, with a 92.6% stake in the field, having CNOOC and CNODC as partners, with 3.7% each.

The P-82 will be the 29th unit to go into production in the pre-salt and is part of Petrobras' new generation of platforms, which are characterized by their high production capacity and by their innovative low-carbon technologies.

The unit will incorporate, for example, the so-called closed flare technology, which increases gas utilization in a safe and sustainable manner and prevents it from being burned into the atmosphere. Other innovations will be the methane gas detection system, capable of acting to prevent or mitigate the risk of leaks of this compound and the "digital twins", which consists of a virtual reproduction of the platform to enable simulations and remote tests, before it goes into operation, a factor that aims to increase safety and reliability.

The platform will also be equipped with CCUS technology - Capture, Use, and Geological Storage of CO2. Petrobras is a pioneer in the use of this technology, which allows it to combine increased productivity with reduced carbon emissions.
