Along with this unit, 8 more will be decommissioned by 2024, raising concerns about the future of workers at these Petrobras units

THE P-33 finally starting its retirement process after Petrobras started its field revitalization program ripe in the Campos Basin, unfortunately this unit will have to be decommissioned as it does not have the technology and capacity to eventually be used for this project. The beginning of its production took place in 1998 and in December 2018, this ocean monster will be completing 20 years of activities. Its production capacity reaches 50 thousand barrels daily and 1.5 million cubic meters.

In addition to this platform, others will be decommissioned by 2024 from the year 2021, they are:

  • 2021: P-26, P-32 and P-35
  • 2022: P-18, P-19, P-20 and P-47
  • 2024: P-47

THE Petrobras says that almost all of these units that will end their operations in the Campos Basin will be replaced by state-of-the-art FPSO's, already providing for more detailed studies and more test drilling in the pre-salt layer of the Campos Basin. Pedro Parente himself, current president of Petrobras, says that this discovery is very interesting and will be used as vigorously as possible in the future.

In the ranking of the most productive oil fields in the country, Campo de Marlim is in sixth place, with a current record of 151 thousand barrels of oil daily, according to official data from the ANP (National Petroleum Agency) this year. A contractual term was signed between Petrobras and the ANP in 2016 for the Marlim and Voador assets to remain in production until 2052. Until then, more production, drilling and completion platforms with improved capacities will be part of the operations, in addition to the forecast of 10 more wells that will go into production.

In addition to offshore activities, the onshore oil and gas industry is also getting stronger in the country. The Rio de Janeiro Petrochemical Industrial Complex will start operating by the end of this semester, Porto do Açú will start the thermoelectric works with many contracts planned and the Petroeng who is already hiring a lot.
