Petrobras announce Platform P-20 resumes production
Petrobras announces that platform P-20, installed in Marlim field, Campos Basin, restarted production on Monday, April 7, at 10:30 am. The unit was temporarily shutdown due to damage caused by a fire that affected the platform’s chemical products system on December 26 of last year. With authorization from the competent agencies, Petrobras has taken all steps necessary to normalize operations on P-20, according to the most rigorous health, safety and environmental standards.
Specialized teams from various disciplines worked tirelessly and hard for about 100 days to carry out the recovery work. Overall, 79 professionals onshore (25 of which exclusively dedicated) as well as 220 onboard were involved.
P-20 has an output capacity of some 20,000 barrels of oil per day and is one of the units that make up the Marlim Field production systems in Campos Basin.
