Petrobras Divestments: New Operatorship Impact

AvatarPosted by

Nordeste Cluster (Carapeba, Pargo, and Vermelho): Perenco began operating these assets in the end of 2019 when they produced about 2,500 bopd. After some workover operations on Pargo in 2021, production now is around 5,800 bopd. Future plans for this cluster include a new FSO – currently the company depends on Petrobras infrastructure for the oil transportation – as well as the replacement of flowlines, and new wells. Depending on the results, Perenco expects to bring the production between 10,000 and 20,000 bopd.

Riacho da Forquilha Cluster: The production from 30 fields in the Potiguar basin which are currently operated by PetroReconcavo went from 5,900 bopd (at the time of the transaction) to 6,800 bopd through extensive well stimulation. The gas output has also seen a substantial increase, going from 175,000 m³/day to 290,000 m³/day as the company seeks to establish themselves as the biggest gas producer on the basin.

Macau Cluster: This group of 7 onshore fields was acquired by 3R Petroleum in 2019. Back then, they produced around 4,100 bbl/day of oil and 265,000 m³/day of associated gas. After several months of workovers and rehabilitating more than 50 wells, the production from the past 6 months had an average of 4,800 bbl/day of oil and 140,000 m³/day of associated gas. The company also has other ongoing acquisitions across multiple basins.

Lagoa Parda Cluster: A little more than a year after Imetame took on the operatorship along with partner EnP Energy Platform, the average oil output has tripled from 120 bbl/day to 370 bbl/day. Some well rehabilitations can be seen on the production charts.
