Concept for BM-C-33 project in Brazil Agreed
Equinor, together with license partners Repsol Sinopec Brasil and Petrobras, have approved the development concept for BM-C-33, a gas/condensate field located in the Campos Basin pre-salt in Brazil.
“BM-C-33 is a key project in our portfolio and concept select is an important milestone in our effort to mature the project. It is important to further optimise and improve the project business case to make it more robust for future market,” says Geir Tungesvik, Equinor’s senior vice president for projects.
The well streams will be sent to a floating production, storage and offloading unit (FPSO) located at the field. Gas and oil/condensate will both be processed at the FPSO to sales specifications and exported. Crude will be offloaded by shuttle tankers and shipped to the international market after ship-to-ship transfer. A new-build hull has been selected to accommodate for 30 years lifetime of the field.
The gas export solution is based on an integrated offshore gas pipeline from the FPSO to a new dedicated onshore gas receiving facility inside the Petrobras TECAB site at Cabiúnas, before connecting to the domestic gas transmission network.
