Petrobras Hits Quarterly and Monthly Production Records

by Paul Anderson|Rigzone Staff|Friday, October 20, 2023

Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) has hit new highs in quarterly and monthly operated oil and gas production volumes.

The company said in a media release that its operated oil and gas production reached 3.98 million barrels of oil equivalent (MMboe) in the third quarter, 7.8 percent above the second quarter.

Additionally, the company has also reached a monthly record of operated production in September with a volume of 4.1 MMboe, 6.8 percent above the August volume.

The results are mainly due to the production increase at the Almirante Barroso platform, which operates in the Buzios field, and the P-71 platform, in the Itapu field—both in the Santos Basin pre-salt—and the Anna Nery and Anita Garibaldi units, in the Marlim and Voador fields, which operate in the Campos Basin, the company said. In September, Petrobras reached the mark of 3.43 MMboe in the pre-salt layer, according to the company.

Another relevant factor was the lower number of maintenance stops at the platforms during this period, the company said.

Petrobras secures 29 blocks in Brazil’s offshore auction

By NS Energy Staff Writer 14 Dec 2023

In the 4th Cycle of the Permanent Offer, the company won 29 blocks in the coastal area of Rio Grande do Sul

Petrobras emerged as the major victor in the 4th Cycle of the Permanent Offer, securing 29 blocks within the Pelotas Basin under the concession regime. This triumph transpired during an auction convened by the National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas, and Biofuels (ANP). Prioritising offshore assets, Petrobras engaged in consortium partnerships with other companies.

In the blocks acquired, Petrobras will assume the role of operator, overseeing three in collaboration with Shell (30%) and CNOOC (20%), and the remaining 26 in partnership solely with Shell (30%). These newly acquired blocks are situated in the coastal region of Rio Grande do Sul.

The company is obligated to pay a signing bonus totalling BRL116m ($23.58m). Notably, this sum accounts for less than 1% of the investments sanctioned in the 2024-2028 Strategic Plan and was preordained within the framework of the plan itself.

Petrobras adopted a discerning approach during the auction, aligning with its strategy to revamp its exploration portfolio by venturing into new frontiers exhibiting geological potential.

Presently, nearly 80% of the company’s production is centred in the pre-salt, maintaining its status as a primary asset due to significant economic and environmental advantages. The pre-salt assets contribute to the production of higher-quality oil while concurrently reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Beyond investments in the pre-salt and the Brazilian Equatorial Margin, Petrobras is committed to securing the sustainability of forthcoming oil and gas production. This involves an integrated approach with diverse energy sources, contributing to the ongoing energy transition in a just, secure, and sustainable manner. The addition of these 29 blocks complements the existing portfolio of 47 blocks.

The acquisition of these 29 exploratory blocks will result in the inclusion of over 20 thousand km2 to the current portfolio, which stands at approximately 30 thousand km2. This represents a substantial 67% increase in the exploratory area.

Petrobras CEO Jean Paul Prates said: “New frontiers, such as the blocks acquired today, are essential for energy demand to be met. For this reason, we seek to replenish reserves and develop new exploratory frontiers that ensure that we meet energy demand during the energy transition with the lowest possible carbon footprint.”

Petrobras engaged in the auction through competitive consortia, aligning with its strategy to bolster partnerships, share risks, and leverage combined technical and technological expertise. The companies recognised a promising geological potential in these areas, providing a foundation for their competitive proposals.

It’s worth noting that both Shell and CNOOC are already collaborators with Petrobras in other partnerships within the Exploration and Production (E&P) segment.

Following this auction, the next steps involve the qualification stage for the winning bidders, followed by the subsequent signing of the contracts.

Petrobras Starts Drilling in Brazil's Equatorial Margin Region

by Bloomberg|Andrew Rosati|Tuesday, December 26, 2023

Brazil’s Petroleo Brasileiro SA began drilling on Saturday in the so-called Equatorial Margin as the state oil company looks to expand production in the promising and ecologically sensitive offshore region.

The drilling of the Pitu Oeste well, located 53 kilometers (33 miles) off the coast of the state of Rio Grande do Norte, is expected take three to five months as Petrobras seeks more geological information about the area.

The push to explore the basins in and around the Equatorial Margin, which extends along the country’s northern coast, has already caused backlash from environmental activists and President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva’s allies.

While Lula, as the 78-year-old leftist is known, has placed protecting the rain forest at the top of his agenda, his government also called for more resource extraction to fund its social programs.

Petrobras previously said it had received permission from Brazil’s environmental regulator Ibama to begin drilling two wells in the deep-water region.

Pétrobras, TotalEnergies et Shell vont tester le captage de CO2 sur un champ pétrolier brésilien

AFP le 08 janv. 2024

Un consortium mené par les géants Pétrobras, TotalEnergies et Shell va tester sur un champ pétrolier sous-marin au Brésil une nouvelle technologie consistant à séparer le pétrole du CO2 au moment de l'extraction afin de réinjecter le gaz dans le gisement.

Cette technologie a pour but de réduire "l'intensité des émissions de gaz à effet de serre, tout en augmentant la capacité de production du champ" pétrolier de Libra, a indiqué le groupe français TotalEnergies dans un communiqué publié lundi.

De nombreux producteurs d'hydrocarbures comptent sur les technologies de captage et stockage du CO2, encore balbutiantes, pour maintenir au moins une partie de leur activité tout en limitant les émissions de ce gaz, principal responsable du réchauffement climatique.

L'accord trouvé à Dubaï à l'issue de la COP28 mentionne d'ailleurs des technologies "d'élimination" pour les secteurs où la décarbonation est difficile tout en appelant à une "transition" hors des énergies fossiles.

TotalEnergies présente dans son communiqué l'unité pilote comme une "technologie pionnière" qui permet de "diminuer le volume de gaz envoyé" à la surface.

Concrètement, la séparation de l'huile, qui donne le pétrole, et du gaz naturel ainsi que du CO2 qui se trouvent dans les couches du gisement se fait au niveau du fond marin au moment de l'extraction, avant que l'huile ne soit acheminée vers la surface, tandis que le gaz est réinjecté dans le sous-sol.

"Au-delà du bénéfice immédiat pour les opérations au Brésil, (cette nouvelle technologie, ndlr) devrait trouver des applications dans d'autres projets de la Compagnie", précise Namita Shah, directrice générale de OneTech chez TotalEnergies, citée dans le texte.

Le champ pré-salifère Libra est situé dans le bassin de Santos au large du Brésil, à 2.100 mètres de profondeur, sous une épaisse couche de sel.

Aussi appelé Mero, du nom de ses unités flottantes de production et de stockage, ses réserves avaient été estimées entre 8 à 12 milliards de barils de brut par l'Agence nationale du pétrole (ANP) au Brésil.

Il est exploité par le géant brésilien Petrobras (38,6%), en partenariat avec TotalEnergies (19,3%), Shell Brésil (19,3%), la China National Petroleum Corporation (9,65 %), la China National Offshore Oil Corporation (9,65%) et PPSA (Pré-Sal Petróleo S.A., 3,5%).

C'est ce consortium qui a financé le développement de la future unité de séparation du pétrole et du gaz reliée à une unité flottante en construction sur le champ Mero 3.
