Petrobras began producing oil and natural gas from the P-76 FPSO unit in the Búzios field, in the pre-salt of the Santos Basin offshore Brazil. The P-76 is connected to 10 producing wells and seven injector wells. Relief vessels will be used to offload oil production, and gas will be drained using pre-salt pipeline routes. The P-76 is the second of four platforms scheduled to start producing this year. It can process up to 150,000 B/D of oil and can compress up to 6 million m3 of natural gas.
