Petrobras has started production from the pre-salt Lapa field in the offshore Santos Basin. The floating production, storage, and offloading vessel Caraguatatuba has the capacity to process 100,000 B/D of oil at the company-operated field, Petrobras said. The company has a 45% interest in the field, with the other stakes held by Shell’s BG unit (30%) and Repsol Sinopec (25%).
